Vick suspension rumors and denials circulate

Controversy over federal dog-fighting charges against Atlanta Falcons' quarterback Michael Vick isn't confined to the courtroom and media. On Sunday, A Yahoo! Sports exclusive quoted two anonymous sources within the National Football League alleging that league commissioner Roger Goodell was preparing to drop a full-season suspension on the embattled star in the next few weeks. But Goodell and the NFL quickly fired back with a denial. According to ESPN, league spokesman Greg Aiello said Monday, "The commissioner has not made any decision" and dismissed any notion that a suspension is imminent. Either way, things aren't looking too good for Vick right now; Goodell has already barred him from training camp while the league concludes its independent investigation, and Vick co-defendant Tony Taylor has agreed to a plea deal that will have him testifying in court against Number Seven. #
