    Vick signs first endorsement contract since being arrested
    The Eagle Tribune Wed Jan 26, 2011, 12:15 AM EST


    Michael Vick is back pitching products.

    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 most of last season.

    The deal will be announced on Thursday.

    "We're real excited about it," 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."

    Vito said Vick is the company's first corporate spokesman. Terms of his deal weren't disclosed. But Vito said it's a "sizable" contract.

    "We believe it was worth it," he said, "because of Michael Vick and how he can shed light on the technology of our products."

    Unequal Technologies makes several shock-blocking sports pads. When Vick returned after missing three games with a rib injury, he wore a vest designed by Unequal. He later wore shoulder pads and thigh pads made by the company.

    Good for him. Hopefully he keeps himself on the straight and narrow. His future is looking pretty bright right now. Hope he knows better than to screw up a 2nd time.

    Why does he want to endorse the pads he wore last season? Most of his injuries could have been prevented by better pads.
