Suspended and imprisoned Falcons QB Michael Vick has at least one influential person in his corner — Tony Dungy.
The retired Colts head coach confirmed to NFL Network that he met with Vick on Tuesday at Leavenworth (Kan.) Federal Prison.
NFL.com’s Steve Wyche also confirmed the meeting earlier today through Vick’s agent, Joel Segal, who characterized the private conversation between Dungy and the QB as “positive.”
Dungy told NFL Network that all of the parties involved agreed it was best to keep the subject of his conversation with Vick private. Vick, who is completing his 23-month jail sentence on federal dogfighting charges, is expected to serve out his sentence under home confinement beginning later this month.
After NFL commissioner Roger Goodell makes a ruling on Vick’s status with the league, Dungy indicated he would elaborate more publicly about the tenor of his conversation with the QB and what role he’ll play in the player’s future.
