It's official: No NFL discipline for Michael Vick

The Eagles have released a statement indicating there will be no discipline for quarterback Michael Vick in the wake of a shooting at Vick's birthday party in June in Virginia Beach, Va.

No charges were filed in the incident, although NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had the power to punish Vick for any perceived wrongdoing.

"Commissioner Goodell informed Michael Vick today (Tuesday, August 3) at Eagles camp that there will be no disciplinary action as a result of the incident in Virginia, based on his current understanding of the facts," the statement read. "Commissioner Goodell spoke several weeks ago by phone with Michael, Tony Dungy, and Eagles Coach Andy Reid. All were in agreement on the need for additional support measures to be added to Michael’s plan to enhance his opportunity to succeed in life and football. These additional steps will remain confidential, but they will require Michael to meet even higher standards."
