Said UT's CEO Rob Vito: "We're real excited about it. Michael is good people. He paid his dues. President Obama reached out to him. He deserves an opportunity. This is what makes America so great. He's moved forward. He's a whole other person."
While it's far from a mainstream, consumer-oriented endorsement deal, it is a start for Vick, who won over fans in Philadelphia and around the NFL this year with spirited play and a playoff run. [If you only knew how hard that sentence was to write for this Giants fan.]
"The reality is that if Vick continues to play at an elite level and the Eagles remain a playoff-caliber team (and donít run over any household pets), by the end of next football season he will perhaps have a chance to regain the marketability he had prior to his imprisonment."
