Roger Goodell Proud Of Vick On And Off The Field

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says Michael Vick is doing all the right things and he’s proud of the way the Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback has turned his life around after serving time in prison for his role in a dogfighting ring.

Speaking to the New York Daily News on a train ride to Philadelphia, Goodell said Thursday the 30-year-old Vick is doing a terrific job on and off the field. Goodell says society needs more success stories and he’s hoping Vick will be one, a person who made tragic error and overcomes it.

Vick threw for four touchdowns and ran for two more in a 59-28 win over Washington on Monday. He will lead the Eagles against the New York Giants on Sunday night.

Goodell says he is in frequent contact with Vick either by phone or by text message, offering encouragement and guidance.

    Where would we be if Washington, or Dallas, got Vick. We would have sole ownership of 4th place.
