According to SportsBusiness Journal, Michael Vick has signed an endorsement deal with Nike.  The deal comes more than two years after Vick was originally dropped by Nike because of his now infamous involvement in Bad Newz Kennels.

Neither Vick's camp nor Nike were willing to disclose terms, but we can probably assume that Vick is earning substantially less than he did when he signed as an NFL rookie in 2001.

I personally think Vick deserves the second chance he is getting, and as long as he continues to show remorse I don't see anything wrong with him playing in the NFL, getting endorsements, and enjoying all the money and benefits that come along with it.  He knows he is on a short leash (no pun intended) and one misstep will almost certainly keep him out of football for life.
