Michael Vick wins the AP’s NFL Comeback Player of the Year award

    Michael Vick took a most unusual path to win the AP’s 2010 NFL Comeback Player of the Year award: no player has returned from jail to earn it.

    After missing two seasons serving a federal sentence for dogfighting, then spending most of the previous year as a seldom-used backup here in Philadelphia, Vick was back at his best in 2010, reports the Associated Press.

    Of the season, VIck said it was “the most fun I’ve ever had playing football. The guys. The organization I play for now. Coaches. Players. Just the way I live my life now. It’s just been great.”
