INDIANAPOLIS – Former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy says Michael Vick wants a second chance when he’s out of prison.

Dungy met with Vick last week at the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kan., where Vick is serving a 23-month sentence for bankrolling a dogfighting conspiracy.

Dungy spoke Wednesday at a workshop in Indianapolis for offenders seeking jobs. He compared Vick’s situation as he nears his release from prison to theirs.

Dungy didn’t discuss details of his visit with Vick, but told The Associated Press that the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback made a mistake.

Vick is to be transferred May 21 to home confinement in Hampton, Va., which is scheduled to last through July.

Vick needs to be give another opportunity. If he was white, this incident would probably have been swept under the rug.

Just last month the star of Prison Break, Lane Garrison, was released from jail after serving 18 mos and a $300k fine...He'll be working in no time. He was convicted of manslaughter, DUI, and giving alcohol to a minor...go figure. You get less time for killing a person than you do for killing a dog.

If he would not have been involved in a dog fighting ring there would be no reason for him to worry about anything
