Days before his expected meeting with Commissioner Roger Goodell, Vick met with NFLPA executive director Demaurice Smith on Tuesday.
The contents of the meeting were not revealed, but it shows that Smith is taking a hands-on approach in his new job and that he’s not afraid to reach out to any player.
Vick seems to be inching closer to a return to the NFL (Sorry unnamed Orlando UFL franchise fans), but he still must do well in his meeting with Goodell.
Speaking on Sportscenter Wednesday, ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio said that Vick met with Tony Dungy last week at Vick’s home in Virginia in an effort to prepare for his meeting with Goodell.
One of Vick’s advisors said it was the “biggest job interview of Vick’s life and he has got to nail to it.”
Paolantonio also included the nugget that a four game suspension during the regular season could still be in play for Vick, even under a conditional reinstatement. In that scenario, he would be able to practice in training camp.
The big question now seems to be where Vick will wind up, not if he will be allowed to play .
