Looks like things on the up for disgraced NFL superstar Michael Vick. Just weeks after being activated by the Philadelphia Eagles and over a month from signing with the team, the quarterback has re-upped with Nike.
More than two years after the shoe giant severed ties with him, due to his involvement in a dogfighting ring, Nike has re-signed with Nike for a new endorsement deal.
Mike Principe, the managing director for the BEST agency that represents Vick, announced the deal on stage at a forum run by SportsBusiness Journal on Wednesday (September 30).
However, 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 highly publicized dogfighting scandal, they terminated his contract in August 2007, after he filed a plea agreement admitting his involvement in the dogfighting ring.
He played his first regular season game since December 2006 on Sunday (September 27).
