Well, he did his time and worked his but off to get back in the game. But it remains to be seen whether or not he keeps his nose clean and stays out of trouble.
If it weren’t clear before, it is now: Michael Vick is the face of the Eagles franchise.
The Eagles and Vick agreed to a six-year, $100 million contract with $40 million guaranteed, NFL sources said Monday night.
The team later confirmed the length of the deal, which locks the quarterback up through the 2016 season. Vick’s return to prominence has been remarkable and faster than anyone could have imagined.
In 2007, he lost nearly everything when he was convicted on dogfighting charges and sent to prison. In the last 12 months he’s gotten nearly everything back: a starting job, endorsement deals, and a blockbuster contract.
“I’m very happy we were able to reach an agreement with Michael on this long-term contract,” Eagles coach Andy Reid said in a statement. “It’s a product of all the hard work Michael has done to better himself over the last couple of years, both on and off the field.
