NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -Michael Vick's bankruptcy attorneys say the imprisoned NFL quarterback expects to return to football.
Attorneys wrote in a disclosure statement that Vick ``has every reason to believe'' he will be reinstated by the NFL once he completes a 23-month sentence for a federal dogfighting conviction last summer. The attorneys filed the statement before a hearing Thursday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Virginia.
Vick still has a contract with the Atlanta Falcons. But NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell would have final say on his return.
The attorneys also lay out a plan for Vick to pay his creditors based on his expected NFL earnings and possible signing bonuses.
