Vick signs first endorsement contract since arrest

    He’s back in business:

    Michael Vick has signed his first endorsement contract since his release from prison.

    The Philadelphia Eagles’ Pro Bowl quarterback inked a two-year contract with Unequal Technologies, a provider of the football pads Vick wore last season.

    Chief executive officer Rob Vito says Vick is the company’s first corporate spokesman. Vick was once the NFL’s highest-paid player and he endorsed many products during his six seasons with the Atlanta Falcons.

    So, it’s a new beginning — but let’s not forget that he’s been warming up.
