According to Jason La Canfora, Michael Vick is on the verge of signing a three-year, $1.55 million deal with MusclePharm, a supplement manufacturer founded by former NFL player Brad Pyatt:
Vick's deal with MusclePharm would be for two years guaranteed, with an option for a third year and would include substantial bonuses based on Vick reaching the Pro Bowl, and the Eagles reaching the playoffs and also the Super Bowl.
Vick would have a social media responsibility with the company and the ease to which he works with MusclePharm executives would help determine whether the third year is picked up. Vick would also receive $100,000 in MusclePharm stock per year and the first two years would include $200,000 in base compensation, and $250,000 in the third year.
Vick's Pro Bowl and postseason bonuses would begin at $25,000, according to the source. The deal could be announced shortly.
Vick, of course, already shills faux energy bracelets and reportedly recently signed a contract with Nike. He also still owes a lot of people money, so it doesn't all go in his pocket. Or at least it's not supposed to.
