Michael Vick has met with NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith, after the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback served 23 months in federal custody for a dogfighting conviction.

George Atallah, assistant executive director for external affairs of the player's union, says Vick and Smith met one-on-one Tuesday. Atallah gave no additional details.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has suspended Vick indefinitely, and said Tuesday that he'll decide whether to reinstate Vick "in the near future." Goodell did not elaborate.

NFL training camps open for veterans next week.

The union's position has been that it will support Vick on a personal level until Goodell decides how to proceed, but Atallah said Smith will likely raise the issue with Goodell.
