Nike re-signs Vick?

Nike who has been known to stand by athletes during scandals has resigned him to a lucrative contract.

CNBC has learned that, in a remarkable move, Nike, which severed Vick’s contract in 2007 after he admitted to his involvement in a dogfighting ring, has re-signed the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback.

“Michael acknowledges his past mistakes,” said Nike spokesman Derek Kent. “We do not condone those actions, but we support the positive changes he has made to better himself off the field.”

Vick’s longtime agent Joel Segal told CNBC that “Michael is excited to have a long-term and strong relationship with Nike.” The deal was done by Chicago-based attorney Andrew Stroth.

This should surpise noone.  We are talking about the same Nike that re-signed Kobe after he was acquitted of rape.  It’s not that Nike has some sort of moral compass or anything, it’s that Nike likes money.  Therefore, Nike will sign anyone who will make them money.  If Michael Vick went out there and sucked it up like Tiger Woods, his ass would be wearing Starter cleats next season.  America love dogs, that why everyone hated Vick when he was charged with dogfighting.  However, America loves touchdowns, fantasy football and ESPN highlights more than dogs, therefore, Michael Vick is back baby!
