Statement from Atlanta Falcons Owner Arthur Blank Regarding Michael Vickâ€™s Plea Agreement and Indefinite Suspension
â€œToday, Michael Vick admitted his guilt to very serious charges related to his earlier indictment. His admissions describe actions that are incomprehensible and unacceptable for a member of the National Football League and the Atlanta Falcons.â€
â€œWe respect and support the Commissionerâ€™s decision today to place Michael Vick on an indefinite suspension. As with other actions he has taken this year, the Commissioner is making a strong statement that conduct which tarnishes the good reputation of the NFL will not be tolerated.â€
â€œWe hope that Michael will use this time, not only to further address his legal matters, but to take positive steps to improve his personal life.â€
The Falcons expect further comment on Monday.
