Michael Vick could serve at least a year in prison if he takes the reported plea deal offered to him by federal prosecutors in his dogfighting case...
Under the agreement, Vick would plead guilty felony conspiracy to travel in interstate commerce in aid of dogfighting and related gambling. He would face a maximum prison sentence of five years and a fine of $250,000, the Times-Dispatch said.

The sources also told the newspaper that the plea deal would call for sentencing guidelines of 12 to 18 months in prison. But it would be ultimately up to U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Wednesday reported that Vick is leaning toward the plea deal.

Citing sources, the newspaper reported that Vick likely will agree to a plea deal by the end of the week. Vick reportedly does not want to agree to the deal until he can find out what effect it would have on his NFL career.

The embattled quarterback has been ordered by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to stay away from training camp pending a full investigation. [SOURCE]
