2 Vick co-defendants enter guilty pleas
RICHMOND, Va. - Two of Michael Vick's alleged cohorts in a dogfighting enterprise entered guilty pleas Friday, leaving the Atlanta Falcons quarterback on his own to cut a deal or face trial on federal charges.
With his NFL career in jeopardy and a superseding indictment adding more charges in the works, Vick and his lawyers have been talking with federal prosecutors about a possible plea agreement. But there was no indication Friday at U.S. District Court that Vick would enter a plea before any new charges are filed, perhaps as early as next week.
Time's running out dog-killer.
My prediction: Vick cuts a deal to some reduced charges. 2 and a half years in prison. Gets cut by Atlanta. Comes back in the 2010 season a fat and slower version of himself today only to find no teams are desperate enough to pick him up.
