Remorse To Play Factor In Vick’s Reinstatement reports NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will be looking for evidence that Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick is truly sorry for the mistakes he made when his reinstatement comes up, according to USA Today. Goodell said, “I’m not going to make a judgment until I know all the facts on Michael Vick. I think it’s clear he’s paid a price, but to a large extent he’s going to have to demonstrate to the larger community — not just to the NFL community and to me — that he has remorse for what he did and that he recognizes mistakes that he made.”
