Bravo. I definitely agree with Stephen A. but Desean Jackson must also look at his actions and see how they are effecting his career on and off the field. There has been a multitude of times where he has thrown up the Rollin’ 60’s gang sign in music videos, on the field, and out partying. This is the NFL and whether we like it or not this type of behavior whether it is harmless or not, can cost you your job and millions of dollars.

Mike Vick gets $100 Million, 6 Year Deal with Philly

So happy for this guy and he has fought adversity and his own stupid mistakes to rise again. Don’t f*ck this up Mike!

The National Football Post’s Andrew Brandt is reporting that Vick and the Eagles have agreed to a six-year, $100 million contract, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter writes that the deal includes about $40 million of guaranteed money.

His deal, if you look at it from an average salary per year aspect, is less than Manning (five years, $90 million, $54.5 million guaranteed), but it’s comparable to Brady (five years, $78.5 million, $48.5 million guaranteed).* At the very least, it’s in that same stratosphere.

“This is what happens when you get too emotional,” Carlson said. “I’m a dog lover, I love them and…I know a lot about what Michael Vick did…I overspoke. I’m uncomfortable with the death penalty in any circumstance. Of course I don’t think he should be executed, but I do think that what he did is truly appalling.”

This is definitely something that I did not think would happen ever again. Kudos to Nike for allowing this man a chance to get his life and career back after such a spectacular fall. Above we have the Nike Gridiron- Michael Vick Experience which was a popular commercial when Vick was the corporate darling of the NFL.

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 deal was announced during a panel discussion at the Sports Sponsorship Symposium by Michael Principe, the managing director of BEST, the agency that represents Vick.
