NFL Commish Mum on When He'll Decide on Vick

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell isn't revealing when he'll decide whether to reinstate Michael Vick now that the former Atlanta Falcons star quarterback has been released from federal custody.

A day after Vick's home confinement ended, Goodell reiterated Tuesday that he plans to rule on Vick "sometime in the near future," but wouldn't define what "near future" means.

Vick served 23 months on a dogfighting conviction. NFL training camps open for veterans next week.

Goodell would not say when he'll meet with Vick. The commissioner has said he wants to see remorse and evidence of change from the player he suspended indefinitely.

Even if Goodell reinstates Vick, the 29-year-old quarterback would still have to find a team willing to sign him.
