Mike Vick has only played in one NFL regular season game. He isn’t a starting quarterback and we have no idea if he will ever be the man again. But despite those things, Nike is back on the Mike Vick bandwagon, just two short years after jumping off.
NEW YORK — Michael Vick is back with Nike two years after the company severed ties over the quarterback’s involvement in a dogfighting ring.
“Mike has a long-standing, great relationship with Nike, and he looks forward to continuing that relationship,” his agent, Joel Segal, said Wednesday.
Segal would not reveal terms of the agreement. Nike declined a request for comment.
The endorsement is the latest step forward for Vick as he seeks to rehabilitate his career and his image after serving 18 months in federal prison. On Sunday, Vick played his first regular-season game since December 2006.
Well, that didn’t take long now did it?
