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.

    What an outrage, that in the NFL, you can commit felonies and still be allowed to make millions. But outside the NFL if you commit felonies you cant even get a job you are 100% qualified for. Am i the only one that sees a problem with this? What kind of example is Roger Goodell sending his players and Fans most of all?
