Federal Grand Jury to Meet Monday

A grand jury is scheduled to convene Monday in the federal court where Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick and three co-defendants were indicted on dogfighting charges last month.

There's no indication whether the grand jury will take up further allegations against Vick. But federal prosecutors have said they plan to seek a superseding indictment in the case.

That would mean more charges against Vick. He's the lone defendant who has not been convicted now that all three of his co-defendants have reached plea deals.

Vick's attorneys were negotiating with federal prosecutors last week, hoping to strike a deal on a plea agreement.

Falcons owner Arthur Blank says it's "a pretty clear indication" there will be some sort of plea entered.
