    Vick poised to add another endorsement deal

    Eagles quarterback Mike Vick has recaptured his earning potential on the field. And he’s getting back his ability to generate off-field money, too.

    Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that Vick soon could sign a three-year, $1.55 million deal with MusclePharm, which makes supplements and other workout-related products.

    Though Vick has a long way to go to catch Peyton Manning in the advertising sweepstakes, no one reasonably expected Vick to ever rebuild his ability to sell products after serving time in a federal penitentiary for dogfighting and gambling. With Nike back in business with Vick, it looks like the stigma has been overcome by the sizzle.

    Congrats to Vick for this major accomplishment. It's nice to see people giving him a 2nd chance. And IMO, he's also earned a 2nd chance.

    I think he went bankrupt and got rid of all that debt.

    Not a fan of Vick at all and I do not believe for one second that he has changed.

    I am dissapointed that Nike went this way but I guess the almighty dollar is priority here.

    I like Vick for changing his life around.At first i didnt like the guy because he beat the broncos so bad every time we played against him lol.

    Now he can start paying some of the bills he is behind on.I believe the mistake cost Vick over 144 million.
    Yeh I forgive what he has done. He done the time and to my knowledge did not publicly sulk about it. He has done all of the right things since and deserves what he has right now.

    I guess Vick had to find out the hard way.The way he grew up you can't keep doing the things you were doing,you have to seperate yourself from the thugs of the streets.

    Growing up in the urban community dog fighting,dice shooting,women,and drugs are a very common thing.He left the hood but the hood didn't leave him.

    I'm glad Tony Dungy did'nt give up on him.He became like a father figure to Vick and gave him instant credibility with the nfl and endorsement companies.I also give McNabb credit for teaching Vick how to become a professional on and off the field.

    I'm glad Vick made a comeback and is remorsefull for his actions.We need more nfl and nba players to step up who grew up in the same situation, change their lives and be role models to the kids ,instead of teaching them the wrong way.

    Once you make it out of the urban community,you can't keep hanging with these guys,they are nothing but trouble for you.

    Props to Vick for making a comeback
