Nike Resigns Mike Vick

Redemption is a beautiful thing. And it has to be especially sweet for Michael Vick. The Philadelphia Eagles star QB has been resigned by Nike to an undisclosed four year deal. This is a great turnaround for Vick, who virtually lost everything (freedom, career, endorsements) after his well publicized conviction for his role in an illegal dogfighting ring in Virginia. Nike released a statement saying, “Michael acknowledges his past mistakes. We do not condone those actions, but we support the positive changes he has made to better himself off the field.”  Vick had an electrifying 2010 season with the Eagles, during which he won the starting spot, lead Philly back to the playoffs,became the first player to pass for three touchdowns and rush for two touchdowns in the first half of a game,made the Pro Bowl and won the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award.
