(Newser) – Lawyers for Michael Vick say the incarcerated football player “is going to turn a new leaf,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. In bankruptcy court in Virginia today, one of Vick’s attorneys said the convicted dogfighter has a $10-an-hour construction job lined up for him when he gets out of prison in a few months. Vick's agent testified that he could be back in the NFL in September, which would go a long way toward helping him settle with creditors.
