Nike Signs Michael Vick To New Deal


“First they love you then they hate you then they love you again”-Kanye

After dropping him in ’07, Nike announced today that they’re re-signing Michael Vick to an endorsement deal. This comes roughly six months after he signed a two-year deal with protective sports gear maker Unequal Technologies, his first endorsement contract since leaving jail.

“Michael acknowledges his past mistakes. We do not condone those actions, but we support the positive changes he has made to better himself off the field.”

Those are the words of Nike spokesperson Derek Kent. Allow me to translate: we do not condone Mike Vick’s actions, but we do condone him being marketable again, and would like to profit from it. I was gonna go in on this, but the aforementioned Kanye quote pretty much sums it all up. Congrats to Mike Vick for getting that endorsement money back, and getting money during the off-sea-er, lockout.

Salute.
