Vick signs deal with Eagles

Michael Vick is back in the NFL, landing a job with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Vick's agent, Joel Segal, confirmed Thursday that the sides had a deal.

Vick has not played in the NFL since 2006. The former Atlanta Falcons star was convicted in August 2007 of conspiracy and running a dogfighting operation, and was sentenced to 23 months in federal prison. He also was suspended indefinitely by the NFL.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally lifted Vick's suspension on July 27, allowing him to sign with a team.

Stallworth suspended without pay for season

NEW YORK -- Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte' Stallworth has been suspended without pay for the 2009 season after pleading guilty to DUI manslaughter.

The NFL announced Thursday that Stallworth will be reinstated after the Super Bowl.

The 28-year-old Stallworth struck and killed a pedestrian while driving under the influence of alcohol March 14 in Miami. He pleaded guilty to the second-degree felony June 16 and was suspended indefinitely by commissioner Roger Goodell two days later.

Stallworth was given a 30-day jail sentence and reached an undisclosed financial settlement with Mario Reyes' family. Police said Stallworth had spent the night drinking at a Miami Beach club. He had a blood-alcohol level of .126, above Florida's .08 legal limit.
