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.

    I believe what Michael Vick did was absoutely wrong!!! However his career has nothing to do with it. I think he has been punished enough!!!

    I am extremely happy for Mr. Vick. He has paid his debt and deserves another chance. He is very talented and his talent should not go to waste. For all the people who are against Michael Vick, GET OVER IT and enjoy watching the Eagles win the superbowl!!!
