From the Philadelphia Inquirer:
The Mayor's Office for the Re-entry of Ex-Offenders (MORE) offers a $10,000 tax credit for employers who hire people who have been released from prison.
Michael Vick, the dogfighting-disgraced quarterback signed by the Eagles this month, spent 18 months in federal prison for his crimes against canines. He's due to make $1.6 million this year.
The Eagles could recoup .625 percent of that if they sought the MORE tax credit, but team spokeswoman Pamela Browner Crawley said that it won't happen. "It was never considered," said Crawley.
