Tony Dungy believes Michael Vick deserves a second chance. Do you?



Tony_dungy Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Tony Dungy believes Michael Vick is focused on putting his life back together. Dungy has agreed to mentor Vick as part of the quarterback's conditional reinstatement to the NFL.

"I'm not sure what football is going to hold for him; that will be discussed at length in the sports pages over the next few weeks," Dungy said in a post on his blog Tuesday. "I believe in second chances for people who admit their mistakes and are committed to changing."

Dungy, who has long been involved in prison ministries, met with Vick in May at the federal penitentiary where the former Atlanta Falcons star was serving an 18-month term for running a dogfighting ring.

Do you believe Vick deserves a second chance? How would you react if your favorite team picked him up?
