Michael Vick is back in the NFL, landing a job with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Vick's agent, Joel Segal, confirmed Thursday that the sides had a deal.
Vick has not played in the NFL since 2006. The former Atlanta Falcons star was convicted in August 2007 of conspiracy and running a dogfighting operation, and was sentenced to 23 months in federal prison. He also was suspended indefinitely by the NFL.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally lifted Vick's suspension on July 27, allowing him to sign with a team.
