Vick Released from Federal Custody

Suspended NFL star Michael Vick's federal dogfighting sentence has ended, freeing him to lobby for a return to the field.

Vick's attorney Lawrence Woodward said Vick was released from federal custody Monday at his home in Virginia. Vick had been under home confinement for the last two months of his 23-month sentence.

The federal Bureau of Prisons had listed Vick's release date as Monday.

Freedom will allow Vick to step up his efforts to resume his pro football career. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has said he will review Vick's status after the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback completes his sentence.

If Vick is able to return to the NFL, it won't be with Atlanta. The Falcons released Vick in June.
