Michael Vick On Ray Rice: There’s No Room For That


Michael Vick has been brought a lot in the conversation about Ray Rice being suspended from the NFL for punching his wife in the face last February.

The Jets quarterback was asked about Rice’s actions and told the New York Daily News that there’s no room for domestic violence in the NFL.

“It’s a tough situation,” Vick told the Daily News Monday. “It’s very sensitive. I think we all got to realize as professional athletes that we are professionals. And we have to be able to maintain our poise in all situations, on and off the field. There’s just no room for that.”

Vick of course received a second chance after going to prison in 2007 for fighting and killing dogs.  He was asked if Rice deserved a chance to redeem himself.

“That’s not my decision,” Vick said. “It’s basically what the organization internally feels what the consequences should be and what they want to put up with. That’s tough man, to be put in that situation. You don’t wish that on any franchise.”
