Yay! Michael Vick is a brand again! He just received his first endorsement deal since serving time in prison. He inked a two-year endorsement deal with Unequal Technologies, a producer of the protective pads worn in football games.
The deal will be publicly announced Thursday, according to the company.
“We’re real excited about it,” the company’s chief executive officer Rob Vito said. “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.
“We believe it was worth it because of Michael Vick and how he can shed light on the technology of our products,” Vito said.
Vick had this to say about his new endorsement deal, “Unequal’s protective power gives me a whole new level of confidence in my game. It makes me feel invincible.”
