is Vick's punishment complete?

Micheal Vick is reportedly considering doing animal rights outreach in New York, his new home since joining the Jets. ESPNewYork.com's Jane McManus raises the question of whether it is necessary and whether Vick has done enough to prove he is rehabilitated and not the same man who was convicted on dog fighting charges in 2007. What is your current opinion of Vick and how has it changed over the years?

Jets sign Vick, release Sanchez

The Mark Sanchez era has officially ended in New York, with the Jets releasing the embattled quarterback and signing Michael Vick on Friday. Vick said that he expects to compete with Geno Smith for the team's starting job, and given Smith's struggles in his rookie season -- 21 interceptions and a 55.8 completion percentage -- he might get that shot. The choice of starter will be a key decision for Rex Ryan, who looks to be on the hot seat if the Jets miss the playoffs for a fourth straight season.

Vick expects to start in 2014

Michael Vick's 2013 season featured yet another injury, this time a hamstring, causing him to lose his starting quarterback job with the Eagles to Nick Foles. Vick hasn't played a full season since 2009, but he doesn't feel that will hurt him as he searches for a starting job this offseason. Is the 33-year-old worth the risk? How much does he have left in the tank?

NFL's most disliked player?

Michael Vick still hasn't been able to shake his association with a dogfighting ring, as he's been named the NFL's most disliked player in a Forbes.com fan survey. More than half of NFL fans surveyed had a negative view of Vick, putting him ahead of players like disgraced safety Manti Te'o and weekly fine risk Ndamukong Suh. Surveying the list, the secret to staying off it seems to be: Don't get in legal trouble, don't be awful, don't have too much success and don't have a reputation as a whiner or malcontent. Simple, really.
