Vick Inks First Endorsement Since Leaving Prison
Welll I have to say it’s about time!
Michael Vick has signed his first endorsement contract since his release from prison.
The deal will be announced on Thursday.
Chief executive officer Rob Vito says Vick is the company’s first corporate spokesman. Vick was once the NFL’s highest-paid player and he endorsed many products during his six seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. But Vick lost everything following his 2007 arrest on dogfighting charges, for which he served 18 months in federal prison.
He returned to the NFL in 2009 with the Eagles, and worked his way from a seldom-used third-string quarterback to the key cog on a division-winning team. He will start for the NFC in the Pro Bowl this weekend.
