Vick declared bankruptcy following his 2007 dogfighting conviction, and his $20 million settlement included an order to repay part of his signing bonus to the Falcons.

The NFL granted Atlanta the credits in March, before the start of the league year.

Vick's deal with the Falcons was for 10 years and worth $130 million, and included a $7.5 million signing bonus.
