Today it was announced that Nike has entered into an endorsement agreement with Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.
Vick was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons and proved effective with his arm and legs before dog fighting charges brought him down and put him in prison for 23 months.
Vick signed a two year contract with the Eagles upon his release from prison and has since revived his career and image through solid changes and decisions.
Nike and the Falcons were amongst the sponsors that fled from any relationship ties with Vick when he went through his issues.
