The rejection notices for Michael Vick kept coming on Thursday.
And New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick isn't saying whether his team is interested in the quarterback.
As the Chicago Bears began training camp, coach Lovie Smith said Vick deserves another opportunity in the NFL. The coach just doesn't see it happening with the Bears even though they lack an experienced backup.
The former Atlanta Falcons star, who served 18 months for running a dogfighting ring, said Thursday he is getting close to signing with a pro team. Vick was conditionally reinstated Monday by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
"I think Mike deserves a second chance, like everyone in society who has paid their debt to society," Smith said. "He deserves a second chance. As far as we're concerned, we like this team that we have right now."
Rams sign second pick: The St. Louis Rams signed offensive tackle Jason Smith of Baylor, the second overall draft pick.
Raiders sign Heyward-Bey: Rookie receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey agreed with the Oakland Raiders on a five-year contract that will guarantee him at least $23.5 million.
