Since his controversial return to the NFL after doing jail time for dogfighting, Michael Vick is still making headlines. This time for all of the endorsement deals he’s been getting.

This month, Vick re-signed with Nike, a company that previously dropped his endorsement deal. He also recently won Subway Sportsman of the Year at the BET Awards, much to the outrage of doglovers who have created a No Way Subway Facebook page, demanding a boycott of the sandwich shops.

Now, according to the Washington Post, Vick may sign a new three-year deal with MusclePharm, worth over a $1.5 million. Joseph Lawanson, a representative for the company, told the Post, “We don’t have any problem considering him at all…And for us to consider him, we’re confident that he has rehabilitated himself.”

    To be clear, he did not go to jail for animal cruelty, butfor the other crimes related to dogfighting. I think too many people do not understand the distinction and are willing to accept that he has “paid his debt to society.” Well, to society maybe. But there is a whole lot more press about his return to football and endorsements than there is about any work he is doing to prevent more dogfighting, ie: his work with HSUS speaking against dogfighting (about which by the way, i am skeptical he is sincere).
