Vick Will Have to Prove His Remorse to Goodell

By  | 

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says Michael Vick has paid a significant price for his "egregious mistake" and will have to show genuine remorse and that the experience has changed him to get a chance at resuming his career in the league.

Goodell appeared Tuesday night at Washington & Lee University, engaging in a panel discussion about leadership in sports and taking questions from the audience.

Afterward, Goodell said he has not kept up with Vick's legal issues since suspending him from the league after his conviction in a federal dogfighting case. Vick is serving a 23-month prison term and has a team of lawyers trying to settle his finances in bankruptcy court.
