The league announced the conditional reinstatement today.
Per the release, he is eligible to participate “without delay” in training camp, and he may play in the final two preseason games played by the team with which he signs.
And he won’t be suspended to start the season in the traditional sense. Instead, he will be permitted to participate in all team activities other than games.
Vick then will be eligible for full reinstatement by Week Six.
So, as a practical matter, it’s a five-game suspension. (Depending on the bye week schedule of the team that signs him, Vick could miss only four games.)
The league also announced that former Bucs and Colts coach Tony Dungy has agreed to work as an adviser and mentor to Vick.
It’s great news for Vick. Hopefully, he realizes that he has gotten a good deal here.
Hopefully, those inclined to complain about the outcome will realize it, too.
Yes, Terrell, we’re looking at you.
