ESPN.com reports that retired Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy said former Atlanta Falcons superstar quarterback Michael Vick has talked to several NFL teams that have interest in him joining their team.

The first quarterback to rush for over 1,000 yards and pass for over 2,000 yards spent 18 months in prison and was just recently released.

Vick has been mentored lately by Dungy so he can help him with his life.

He was arrested for dogfighting at a ring, and hopefully Vick has learned his lesson.

On Sunday, while on NBC, Dungy said, "I've talked to quite a few coaches who want to get my thoughts on where [Vick] is."

He also said Vick has talked to many teams, like I said in this report.

Dungy also says that Vick will have to be with a team before training camp ends.

He has recently been interviewed by the Green Bay Packers.

On those statements, Dungy was not kidding. He was taking this seriously.

He needs Vick to get into a team before training camp ends, and right now there is no doubt that a team may be looking for him.

Vick will be on an NFL team soon, and let's see what he does when he returns to the NFL turf.
