Vick Attorneys Enter Negotiations for Plea Deal

Apparently, attorneys for Michael Vick have entered into some sort of negotiations with prosecutors in his dog fighting case. Prosecutors may have set Friday as an unofficial deadline to accept a deal; if not indications are that Vick may be indicted again with more, and potentially more serious counts added against him.

On co-defendant, Tony Taylor has already pleaded guilty and is presumably cooperating with investigators so that he may receive the maximum consideration under USSG 5K1.1 Vick's remaining co-defendants, Purnell Peace and Quanis Phillips, are scheduled to plead guilty on Friday.
