Eagles quarterback Mike Vick has recaptured his earning potential on the field. And he’s getting back his ability to generate off-field money, too.
Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that Vick soon could sign a three-year, $1.55 million deal with MusclePharm, which makes supplements and other workout-related products.
Though Vick has a long way to go to catch Peyton Manning in the advertising sweepstakes, no one reasonably expected Vick to ever rebuild his ability to sell products after serving time in a federal penitentiary for dogfighting and gambling. With Nike back in business with Vick, it looks like the stigma has been overcome by the sizzle.
