Fallen College Football Star, Marcus Vick finally turned himself in to the Newport News sheriff Sunday night.
The 27-year-old Newport News native and younger brother to Philadelphia Eagles star quarterback Michael Vick had been sought on a bench warrant for repeatedly failing to appear in court to answer to a two-year-old traffic charge. Now he’s serving 10 days for contempt; with good behavior he could be out in five.
But upon release later this week, he’ll likely be transferred to Montgomery County to answer even more charges related to his 2004 conviction there for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
These are impressive feats for any repeat offender, but Marcus has also managed to rack up previous convictions for driving under the influence, eluding police and driving on a suspended license, with pending charges of driving on a suspended license — all in various jurisdictions.

Trying to get a feel for what the Eagles are going to do next week after the official start of Free Agent season, I've come upon some real brain-teasers...

Andy Reid sat down with Les Bowen of the Daily News and discussed a bunch of things, including Peyton Manning. We already know Ray Didinger thinks the Eagles should go after #18, but what about Reid?
“We’re obviously happy with Michael,” Reid said. “You could ask that question of probably everybody in the National Football League except the Giants, right? … That’s not...
Crazy thought for the day: If Houston defensive end Mario Williams becomes a free agent, would the Philadelphia Eagles go after him?
I’ve been watching the Texans and how they handle the situation with Arian Foster and Mario Williams. My thinking was that there wouldn’t be any chance that either would hit the free agent market, especially Foster.
Peyton Manning will wear the horseshoe no more.
It doesn’t matter what team you ordinarily write about or root for. Today, you write about Peyton Manning, the soon-to-be former Colt.
No, he’s not retiring. He’s facing the fate of so many in the national football league, usually to much less pomp and circumstance: He is being cut by his team.
Some of the tributes that have...

Despite several reports suggesting the contrary, the Philadelphia Eagles are content heading into the 2012 NFL regular season with QB Michael Vick under center. While discussing the upcoming regular season with the Philadelphia Daily News, Eagles head coach Andy Reid shrugged off any ideas of Philadelphia making any moves at the quarterback position.
Before anyone goes crazy, Didinger says he does not think the Eagles are in the running. With that said, he does believe it makes a ton of sense.
If Jeff Lurie really is the risk-taking, outside-the-box owner that he professes to be, he should sit down with his cabinet today and say, “Let’s talk about this.” You don’t get the chance to bid on an all-time great...
On the whole, the NFL runs itself in quite a professional manner. There are the odd black marks on the league, such as the Michael Vick dog fighting scandal, but most unwanted publicity is caused by the actions of individual players not the league in general. Last year’s brief lockout didn’t help though, but the latest uproar involves a bounty system that was implemented by the...
