NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- Michael Vick's bankruptcy attorneys say the imprisoned NFL quarterback expects to return to football. Attorneys wrote in a disclosure statement that Vick "has every reason to believe" he will be reinstated by the NFL once he completes a 23-month sentence for a federal dogfighting conviction
last summer. The attorneys filed the statement before a hearing
Thursday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Virginia. Vick still has a contract with the Atlanta Falcons. But NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell would have final say on his return. The attorneys also lay out a plan for Vick to pay his creditors
based on his expected NFL earnings and possible signing bonuses.
