Minor Football League Offers Vick a Spot

Michael Vick has a place in minor league football if he doesn't head back to the NFL.

The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback, whose federal sentence for dogfighting ends July 20, would we welcomed by The Minor Football League, consisting of professional teams in Washington, D.C., Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania.

The president and founder of the MFL, Richard Myles, said Wednesday the league is willing to give him a place to play while the NFL decides his fate.

"One of the things that is important to the MFL is to showcase the quality of the players and the coaches who want to transition into the NFL, as well as give back to our communities by mentoring our youths," says Myles.

"Every player in the MFL is required to perform 100 hours of community service. Vick could serve as an example to our youths by demonstrating good citizenship while maintaining his skills and edge playing with the MFL. I believe that everyone deserves an opportunity to redeem themselves and that Vick is on the right path to redemption."
