Thanks for Playing: Mike Vick Released By Falcons

He's a free agent!  Who wants him?  (OK, he's still suspended too)

Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said the team relinquished its contractual rights to Vick on Friday.

"Michael remains suspended by the NFL," Dimitroff said. "However, in the event NFL commissioner Roger Goodell decides to reinstate Michael, we feel his best opportunity to re-engage his football career would be at another club."

Not a surprise, we all knew he wouldn't return to Atlanta.  I still believe he'll return somewhere this season though.
