30 Days?

Drive drunk, kill a guy, and be ready for training camp!:

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte' Stallworth took full responsibility for killing a pedestrian while driving drunk in Florida and began serving a 30-day jail sentence Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to DUI manslaughter.

Stallworth also reached a confidential financial settlement to avoid a potential lawsuit from the family of 59-year-old Mario Reyes, according to Stallworth's attorney, Christopher Lyons. Reyes was struck and killed March 14 by Stallworth, who was driving his black 2005 Bentley after a night drinking at a swanky hotel bar.

That, to me, was much, much worse than shooting yourself in a nightclub, though whether it's worse than Vick's crime is debatable.

Though clearly, none of the above is a worse crime than playing quarterback in the NFL for ten years without a Super Bowl championship.

A thought for comparison - how did the drunk driver who killed Nick Adenhart make out? Also consider that the woman driving the car Adenhart was in was also drunk.
