michael vick a free man, but will he play again?

Michael Vick’s electronic monitor has come off today , making him a free man once again.

Vick had been on home confinement the last 60 days of his sentence. Afterwards, he headed to federal courthouse in Norfolk, VA to complete paperwork. On the way, a man in a passing vehicel yelled to the player, “We’ve got your back, Mike!” Vick silently raised his right fist in the air.

Vick’s mother was present, with a smile on her face. 

“He’s doing fine,” she told The Associated Press Monday afternoon, but added she wasn’t sure what his next step would be.

The former NFL player, who served 23 months on a dogfighting convictionn, will now procede to find a team interested in signing him, one week after NFL training camps opened for veteran players.

“It is going to take a lot of hard work” for Vick to make it back, said New York Jets veteran wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery. “He is a talented player, so someone will give him a shot,” Cotchery added. “He just has to take advantage of it.”

However, the owners of the New York Jets and Giants has already stated that they have no interest in signing Vick.

Once the NFL’s highest-paid player, he will remain on probation for three years.

The case and charges forced Vick to file Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July 2008. A hearing on his plan to repay creditors is scheduled for July 31.
