Today at 4 AM CST, Michael Vick was released from Kansas federal prison, and somehow avoided all media on his sneaky exit.

Vick, along with his fiance and a few others now make the road trip home to Hampton, VA, where he will be under house arrest for the remainder of his sentence.

He will be a working man though, but football is on the "back burner" for right now. Vick, who was once the NFL's highest-paid athlete, will be working for a construction company at $10 per hour.

He will be on three-year probation after his federal custody release in late July.

Roger Goodell, the commissioner of the NFL, said that the reinstatement process for Vick will wait until the end of his sentence.
