The Buffalo News has reported that the Bills are not interested in Michael Vick, who has been officially reinstated into the NFL by Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Russ Brandon, the team's chief operating officer/general manager, confirmed the report.

"We wouldn't have any interest at this time," Brandon said. "We're comfortable with our roster as it stands right now."

As he should be.

Third-year quarterback Trent Edwards is the Bills' starter, and he's backed up by fourth-year QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and Gibran Hamdan, a third-year player from Indiana.

Vick was reinstated on Monday, with conditions. After serving 18 months in prison for being involved in a dog fighting ring, Vick may be able to participate in games as early as October.

However, Vick can immediately take part in preseason practices, workouts, and meetings, and can even play in the final two preseason games, if a team should so choose.

Once the 2009-10 season begins, Vick can participate in any team activity except for games. Goodell says he would consider a full reinstatement of Vick as early as week six.
