Outrage is simmering with the revelation that Michael Vick is a coaching intern with the Kansas City Chiefs. Because of the dogfighting scandal in his past, his name still makes many of us cringe. But that was 10 years ago, Vick has paid a price in many ways, and is the answer really to just throw him on a scrap heap?
Former NFL quarterback Michael Vick, once imprisoned for running a brutal dog fighting operation, has been hired by the Kansas City Chiefs this summer, riling many animal advocates. A petition against Vick has started online.
Michael Vick last played in the NFL during the 2015 season, starting three games for the Pittsburgh Steelers. In 2016, Vick stepped away from football and began coaching at the high school level, before officially retiring this past February. Now, he is a coaching intern for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Just hours after the Kansas City Chiefs introduced Brett Veach as their new general manager, head coach Andy Reid and head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder addressed the status of the Chiefs’ injured players entering training camp.
The Chiefs begin training camp this week after an offseason marked by massive turnover in the front office and a blockbuster trade to pick a raw but remarkably talented quarterback in the first round for the first time in 34 years. Other than, not much going on.
Tamba Hali has held his tongue, and his frustration, in for a long time. The time for that, however, has come to an end, as Hali not only questioned his lack of playing time down the stretch last season in a string of tweets on Saturday – which were authentic, sources told The Star – he also seemed to question a handful of his teammates’ decision to skip organized team activities on a podcast which posted the same day.
