    No links yet, but both MSNBC and CNN are reporting that Vick has agreed to a plea deal. No details yet either. MSNBC said this is according to Vick's lawyer.

    ESPN is now as well (sure they'll claim it's their story)

    He better be doing time and be out of the NFL. That is all I can say.

    And after he's out of prison, he'll probably end up in the CFL

    Really I hope that's where they draw the line. Besides you have to be able to throw the ball accurately down field to be a QB in the CFL. Otherwise you end up another Marcus Crandell or Nealon Greene.

    That's also provided he can get a work visa which, given his status as a felon, is highly unlikely

    Considering this case was seemingly handed to the prosecution on a platter, I will be a little disappointed if that's all he gets. And the NFL better hand down something more significant than a one year suspensionfollowing his release from prison.

    It may not matter. Two years in jail, combined with an inability to throw accurately, probably means his NFL career is effectively over. Except for the inevitable stop in Oakland. But he's not going to get faster after 36 months in pound-me-in-the-ass prison. Hell, he'll be lucky if he doesn't get shivved by someone looking to make a name in the yard.
