Rehabbed Michael Vick gets his first endorsement deal
Michael Vick has got his edge back on the field.
Now, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback is starting to get his edge back off the field.
Specifically, businesses are showing a willingness to invest in the convicted felon as a pitch man. Vick, at the height of his career in Atlanta one of the top earners off the field in the NFL, has signed on to endorse Woodbury Nissan, a New Jersey dealership in suburban Philadelphia. According to the report in the Philadelphia Daily News by Les Bowen, Vick throws a set of keys to a salesman so hard he injures the man’s hand.
“I did pretty good,” Vick said. “That's not my MO, that's not what I do, but I can do it if I want to. You can do anything you put your mind to.''
