Dimitroff confirms decision on QB, who is expected to be released from prison in July

The Falcons are actively seeking to trade Michael Vick.
Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said the team is preparing to trade the rights to the imprisoned and suspended quarterback, according to the team’s Web site.
“With regards to Michael Vick, we’ve decided to seek a trade of his contractual rights to another NFL club,” Dimitroff said. “We took a number of steps in the 2008 season, including using our first pick to draft a quarterback. We feel a trade is the best move for the Falcons, and it’s also in the best interest of Michael. This has been a really unique situation from a variety of standpoints, and because we will actively be involved in a trade situation, I don’t envision our organization speaking any more about this subject publicly until it’s reached a resolution.”
