Vick released on Wednesday

May 19th, 2009

Former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick will begin his home confinement at some point tomorrow after he is released from federal prison in Leavenworth, Kansas some time after midnight tonight.

Vick will spend two months in home confinement in Hampton, Virginia, before being released from federal custody in July. During that time, he will work for a construction company in nearby Newport News, Virginia.

Vick is currently under contract with the Falcons and is serving an indefinite suspension from the league stemming from his conviction on federal charges stemming from dogfighting in 2007. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has indicated in the past that in order for Vick to be reinstated in the league after his prison term ends, he will have to show genuine remorse.
