Michael Vick's Career -- Under Construction

5/21/2009 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael VickNewly freed dog-fighter Michael Vick is gonna need a hammer and a hard hat to rebuild his image -- dude just got a job as a construction worker.

TMZ has learned Vick is set to start his work release job at WM Jordan Construction in Virginia. But if the former NFL star is sent out into the field, he will be extremely limited -- meaning he won't be allowed to work on any government sites because he's a felon.

We're told people in the company think Vick got the job because he used to work for the company back in his Virginia Tech days.

39. MojoCeltica Vick is rich and black and was used to make an example of. If you look at the statistics for people sentenced for Dog fighting, in over 80% of the time there is no jail time by Tony

Hey Tony. I would actually like to see those stats... I'd also like to see their names and the addresses of their trailers.

It looks like I have to apologize to trailer trash everywhere. I found an article in the Palm Beach Post that said: "In a three-year study ending in 2004, Chicago police found that 59 percent of people involved in dogfighting were known gang members and nearly all of them - 86 percent - had been arrested at least twice."

Why is it so hard for people to understand that these athletes are supposed to be role models for our children? People in ordinary jobs who make mistakes can go back with no impact on our youth, but not these guys (or women). NO pro athlete should be allowed back in the sport if they are convicted felons. They had their chance, now let them live like the rest of us mere mortals.

Let me make myself clear, no one is saying the man shouldn't be allowed to earn a living, just not as a pro athlete.

Good Luck Michael... There are a lot of people in this world that will wish you bad luck, but just remember that you have paid your price for your error. People are not God. He is the only one that must forgive you.

I really don't get the few hate filled idiots that come to this site...

Michael Vick got snitched on* Admitted Guilt* Lost Endorsements* Lost some Possessions* Served Time* and is now released for probation...and some of the idiots on here still want him to suffer...So let's see...How many foulers on here never want to see him reinstated to the NFL?

There is a DOUBLE STANDARD in this room*

Just for entertainment purposes only...Ozzy Osbourne use to bite the heads off of LIVE birds on stage...and "people" flocked to concerts to watch...WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE? And before you answer, his reward years later was to be given a reality series...

I'm just making and observation...I didn't mean to offend anyone!!!

And scene!

common sense    

The owner of the construction company, a fellow with the last name of Lawson is also a huge contributor to Va Tech. I'm sure there's NO connection there.....

Everyone is all upset over did he or didn't he "serve his time"? Maybe he did by the courts standards but has anyone ever looked at the fact of just what those animals have gone through each day in rehabilatation, the cost of the care that Best Friends had to put out for these dogs for all these years and some of these dogs are NOT rehabilatable due to nature of the severity of the injuries and the longevity of their fights so they will live out their days in a sanctuary; (never living in a home). Should he be allowed to play professional ball again and be a role model to our children- NO NEVER AGAIN SHOULD HE BE ALLOWED THAT PRIVELAGE! NFL Would be making a grave error in judgement lowering the lines for such a criminal. These dogs never stood a chance when he ordered their fights; he lied continually about it costing tax payers more monies during the investigation of the search of the dogs so he could hide and continue to live his high life while he not ONCE thought about these dogs! He should have to pay restitution for the rest of his life to shelters across America to rehabilitate animals/vet bills, and to expand the shelter's needs! I am a shelter worker and can not imagine just letting someone go with a 2 year sentence and a slap on the wrist. We have to take a stand and say "no" we won't tolerate this anymore- no more abused animals any longer! Not one! Join me on Twitter, Facebook, any way you can to get the word out- say NO TO MICHEAL VICK'S RETURN TO THE NFL! DO THIS DAILY AND LET'S GET THIS GOING SO WE CAN STAND UP FOR OUR FURRY FRIENDS- THEY DON'T HAVE A VOICE- WE HAVE TO GIVE THEM ONE!

Does anyone remeber the words Thou Shall not Judge? God is the only being that should be Judging Vick. He should deffinitely be allowed to play in the NFL again. Why is he a THUG, because he is Black and had money and thought it was intense to fight dogs? Look he has done his time and he should be allowed to go back to living as he chooses. Who died and made any of you God? None of gets to decide if he should be sent to hell for his sin? So stop trying to send him to hell. He desrves a second chance like everyone else. Vick, go for it, your life is not over and haters are everywhere you look and at every turn in your road back to having a normal. Let them hate it's their Job. I pray these haters are never judged by anyone as they are judging Michael Vick. Call Katt and get a pep talk you be all rite!
