Vick can keep Falcons' bonuses

Michael Vick, the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback now doing time in federal prison on dogfighting charges, can keep nearly $20 million in bonuses paid by the team, a federal judge in Minneapolis ruled this morning.

A special master found in October that Vick needed to pay back the money, but the judge said return of the funds would violate the NFL's collective bargaining agreement.

The Daily Press has an AP report on the ruling.
