The biggest question surrounding the NFL lately has been what Commissioner Roger Goodell will do with Michael Vick.

Goodell, on several occasions, has expressed he needs Vick to show "remorse."

I guess Vick's way of showing remorse is hitting up a strip club on his first night of freedom.

According to Yahoo! Sports, Vick and NBA star Allen Iverson were seen partying at the Atlantis strip club in Virginia Beach, Virginia on Monday night.

Is it just me, or is a strip club one of the worst places to spend your first night of freedom for a guy who's trying to prove he's a changed person?

I have nothing against spending a night at one, but strip clubs have been known as one of the most dangerous and troubled places for athletes to be during the last few years.

Yahoo! Sports was able to contact the club and were able to get this response: "Mondays are crazy here, it’s amateur night, and it’s packed," said the DJ. "Yup, both of them were here. It’s the first place I’d want to go as a free man, too."  

Obviously going to a strip club is not illegal, and it doesn't make Vick a bad person. However, was it really smart in his situation?

ESPN has reported Vick and Goodell might meet Thursday or Friday.
