Michael Vick remains under contract but there is an offer on the table.
Playgirl has offered the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback an offer it hopes he can’t refuse. The magazine claims it will donate $1 million to PETA if Vick takes it all off and poses for the magazine, according to Life & Style magazine. Talk about a naked bootleg.
"I sent the request to Michael Vick on Wednesday," Daniel Nardicio, a Playgirl spokesman, told Life & Style. "But we haven't heard back yet.
"I figured he paid back society for dog fighting, but what about the animals? This way he could donate a large sum to PETA and all he'd have to do is pose for the magazine! It's kind of a win-win situation."
Or something like that.
Vick wouldn’t be the first athlete to bare it in the name of PETA. Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez and his wife October stripped down to pose for PETA back in the fall as part of something that was called the “We’d rather go naked than wear fur” campaign.
Now back to your regularly scheduled Vick trade rumors.
