If the Eagles were hoping to know Michael Vick’s status before dealing A.J. Feeley, they reportedly won’t have to wait long.
ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio reports that the Eagles expect NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to issue a ruling on Michael Vick’s possible reinstatement from the league by Saturday’s mandatory cutdown to a 53-man roster.
Goodell and Vick will meet “soon.” The two have reportedly been speaking on a weekly basis.
There hasn’t been much speculation about how quickly Vick will be reinstated, but many prominent voices around the league initially hinted that they wouldn’t be surprised if Vick is eligible to play Week One if the preseason goes well.
Aside from some spare comments and gestures from Donovan McNabb, Vick’s month has gone by about as quietly as could have been expected.
