Report: Michael Vick is on the verge of another endorsement deal

In spite of the lockout of NFL players, Michael Vick is raking in the money.

The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback is on the verge of signing his biggest endorsement deal since the rebirth of his NFL career, according to an NFL Network report. Vick’s representatives have been negotiating what Jason La Canfora reports could be a three-year, $1.55-million deal with MusclePharm.

Earlier this month, he signed anew with Nike. Vick had lost the Nike account and other deals when he was convicted for his role in a dogfighting ring. He served 20 months in a federal prison and joined the Eagles in 2009. He was the NFL comeback player of the year in 2010 and was an MVP candidate.

Joseph Lawanson, director of team development for MusclePharm, confirmed that Vick is under consideration. “We don't have any problem considering him at all,” Lawanson said. “And for us to consider him, we're confident that he has rehabilitated himself.”
