The National Football League's Philadelphia Eagles have signed Michael Vick, making his return official and ending speculation of where he would end up.
Vick has not played in NFL since 2006.
He was convicted in 2007 of conspiracy and running a dog-fighting operation. He was sentenced to 23 months in federal prison and was also suspended indefinitely by the league.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally lifted Vick's supsension on July 27, allowing him to sign.
According to the terms of the reinstatement, Vick is able to practice with the Eagles immediately and play in their final two preseason games. By week 6 of the season, Goodell will rule on Vick's eligibility to play in regular season games.
