Michael Vick Gets Back in Check With Renewed Nike Endorsement Deal

Things are looking better for disgraced NFL superstar Michael Vick. Weeks after being activated by the Philadelphia Eagles, the quarterback has re-upped with Nike.

Mike Principe, the managing director for the BEST agency that represents Vick, announced on stage at a SportsBusiness Journal forum that Nike has re-signed Vick for a new endorsement deal Wednesday (September 30). Details about the deal were not revealed.

“Mike has had a great relationship with Nike and is excited to be part of the Nike team again,” Segal told SBJ.
Nike originally signed Vick as a rookie in 2001, but after his notorious dog-fighting scandal, they terminated his contract in August 2007, after he filed a plea agreement admitting his involvement in the dog-fighting ring.

Vick joined the Philadelphia Eagles after serving 18 months in federal prison.He played his first regular season game since December 2006 on Sunday (September 27).
