"I think you just continue to hold him down by bringing him back and then suspend him.”
Wilson said he will discuss Vick’s status with Owens and teammates to determine whether to bring the Bills players’ position to the union.
"We’ll see where it goes, but I think Terrell is right in stating his position,” Wilson said. "This is an instance where perhaps our players association needs to try to get involved.”
The union’s position has been that it will support Vick on a personal level until Goodell decides how to proceed. NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith met with Vick this past week, and intends to discuss the player’s status with Goodell.
The Bills have declined comment on discussing Vick.
"Why shouldn’t he (be reinstated)? I mean, there’s a lot more guys around the league that have done far more worst things than that and gotten second chances.”
