Michael Vick: $100 Million Man Once Again

Comeback

(via ESPN) - ”Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles agreed on a six-year contract on Monday that again makes the Pro Bowl quarterback one of the highest-paid players in the NFL. A league source told ESPN’s Andrew Brandt the deal is worth $100 million and a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that it contains roughly $40 million guaranteed.”

Vick will be the first player in NFL history to sign two $100 Million contracts. His first 9-figure deal was for $130 Million with the Falcons in 2004.

Why so much? See below.

  • The Oppressor

    This isnt b-ball related but since the lockout has caused a news drought ill let it ride

  • Jer dawg

    After he pays creditors and after taxes, what’s left? He better keep earning that $100M because $40 guaranteed doesn’t seem enough. And what’s up with the Eagles? They’ve been notoriously cheap for the longest time and this year its mad spending!

    Is Kevin really JTaylor? You seem to co-sign on everything he says and defend him every chance he gets.
    JTaylor’s been here for a minute and despite us going back and forth all the time, I respect dude enough to know he’s a big boy, he can handle himself.

  • http://nokeysmusic.tumblr.com krocx

    U can’t hate on jtaylor cuz the dude loves p*ssy.

  • http://thahiphopcorner.com Kevin

    I dont even know dude, and I think I might have co-signed him maybe like 3 times. I only said what I said because I hate when people make threats over the internet, s**t is lame

  • http://gmail.com z

    LMAOOOO, this thread’s hilarious…”jtaylor you scumbag!!!” lol, alot of people get sensitive over all the wrong things. Mike vick deserves the death penalty? Really? He killed some dogs, man. Does SD619 believe ROethlesberger deserves to die as well?

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    I feel you on that.
    There’s people who make threats over the internet who would absolutely make good on them in real life, and there’s people who would run and hide, but I agree with you.
    The worst is racist people who don’t say a peep in real life but all of a sudden they’re the next Hitler on the internet.

  • http://gmail.com z

    Anyways, I just wanna give slam props for being down with mike v

  • Feez22

    Do you guys know whats crazy though? according to sources if mike vick makes the full 100 million he will only have BROKEN EVEN with his creditors. I thought he only owed his creditors 25 million… turns out he owes in excess of 50-60 million thats nuts.

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    I reserve most of my hatred for child killers and child molesters.
    There’s nothing anyone could ever say or do to justify those people’s actions.
    But I can understand how people could get heated at what Mike Vick did.
    That being said, only PETA and super-hardcore dog lovers should ever say Vick deserved the death penalty for what he did.
    Prison time, sure. Death? Too much.

  • http://slamonline.com Tae

    Good for him. Even thou im no Eagles fan, i hope he plays up to it

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    Cosign Jtaylor21.
    I can care less about some dogs. Also people chicken fight and kill deers and birds for fun around the world all the time. Also people also kill horses they own, when the horse has ran its course. People getting all worked up over dogs. I have own pits, labs, poodles and NO ONE SHOULD GET 2 YEARS for killing dogs. I AM GLAD HE GOT HIS MONEY BACK AND REMEMBER PEOPLE LIKE THE CARTOON SAYS ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN!!!

  • http://gmail.com z

    yea, matic, i’m not even sure that he shoulda gone to prison for that…I mean, maybe, but come on, now, alotta these people bleating for death to vick for what he did to some dogs could care less about WORSE things that are done to PEOPLE!! That’s what gets me—people who are up in arms about dog’s rights, and then turn a blind eye to violations of human rights (just right off the top of my head–for people to tell a pair of homosexuals they can’t get married is a violation of a homosexual’s HUMAN RIGHT to love who they want). I mean seriously SD619, at least get all righteous about something that affects your own life

    Vick was convicted and did his time.

    Was the other team bad? it looked like Vick played in slow motion. Was it his offensive line giving him all that luxury? loved it when he faked the pass.

  • http://twitter.com/HarryByrdMan44 LA Huey

    Dude, served his time. Doesn’t mean you have to like him or forgive him but he doesn’t owe society anything. If you think he deserved to die, I hope you’re a vegan that pays real close attention to how your food is made…btw, cats is where it’s at.

  • HAMMER

    What Vick did was just plain wrong. And stupid. Im not saying he deserves the death penalty. Whatever time he did do was suffice. And I do truly, sincerely hope he has changed his view on dogs. Dogs and all other animals are living creatures that should be treated humanly. What people tend 2 forget is that animals are just as defenseless as children. Im not comparing the life of a human child to that of an animal, its just an observation. And the atrocities that many people do to their own children, even an animal, wouldn’t do. Many people could learn a thing or two from animals. Like how to care for there offspring and 2 be protective of them. How to be loyal and have feelings. Cuz animals do have feelings no matter what anyone says. These r reasons why I have no respect 4 people who abuse animals.

  • http://slamonline.com biged

    America is the only country that would lock someone up for a crime like that. i think it dumb. we have crooks on wall street that is messing up the country everyday for their selfish gains and nothing every happens to them. politician that should be running the free world commits white collar crimes all the time and pocket our peoples’ hard earn money and they get off yet a couple of dogs die and you lock a man up. plus on top of that tax payers have to pay to feed this man while he’s in jail. people have their standards of right and wrong all mixed up.

    in my neighborhood right now they are about three or four loose dogs that have been walking around for months. all y’all dog lovers need to come adopt them

    I love the taste of Ingrid Newkirk’s tears. Congratulations Vick.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Wall street crooks have NOTHING to do with animal abusers. Nothing. The American legal system is a pile of sh!t (probably better than the piles of sh!t in other countries, but a pile of sh!t nonetheless). That doesn’t change the fact that forcing dogs to tear each other apart, and then watching them as they die, is absolutely wrong. There shouldn’t even be a discussion about this. It doesn’t even matter if you like dogs or not.
    If you believe that a living being, especially one with the loyalty and intelligence of most dogs, deserves to be tortured, you are a waste of the planet’s resources and do not deserve the privilege of clean water and oxygen. You are scum.

    Get that money bruh! Animals are not defenseless babies; only humans have no ability to survive off instincts without being cared for as infants.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/officerbarbrady what

    It’s not about whether torturing animals is OK or not; it’s about one man who tortures animals going to jail for two years while countless others who abuse and torture animals not only walk free but in many cases get federal agricultural subsidies. I’m pretty sure most of us who support Vick do not support animal torture. Personally, as a Hindu, I don’t find what Vick did to be any more offensive than what Ruth’s Chris Steak House does, and I see the distinction that allows cows (among other animals) to be mistreated with no repercussions while dogfighters serve multi-year sentences as an arbitrary and irrelevant one. The elevation of dogs to a level higher than that of other animals is enforcing the factually unsupported view of one culture — in this case, white American culture — over that of others. So when Vick says he grew up in the culture of dogfighting as an explanation for what he did, I can totally understand what he means. Aside from the fact that white people like dogs more than cows (and other animals), there is no logical reason for the mistreatment of dogs being so much better protected under the law, and that’s not good enough reason to deprive Vick of two years of his life in my opinion.

    That’s it. This has nothing to do with basketball, nor do “layup lines”. I also don’t give a sh*t about shoes. I’m deleting this site from my favourites and never coming back. Nice job, SLAM- you’ve let this site become a joke.

    smartest thing jtaylor21 has said. I dont understand jerkoffs fighting for dogs and cats rights, when it is still human beings around the world getting their land and rights abused by the powers that be.

  • http://dfklf.com Jukai

    I am hoping Michael Vick fails at everything he does because I personally think he did a detestible thing and I don’t think he deserves any success. But I don’t think he deserves anymore time spent than what he did, and I don’t think it’s unreasonable he got paid the amount of money he got. I’m just personally hoping he breaks a leg or something.

  • HAMMER

    Well, well said Teddy. Its all bout having a heart and respecting life. Wether it be the life of a human being, or that of a animal.

  • Allenp

    That was a powerful comment to me What. Your perspective as a Hindu was an interesting one. Cause you know we love our beef.

  • http://sdklflc.com Jukai

    Do Hindus slaughter their animals in a more humane way like Jews and Muslims? I don’t know, and I couldn’t find the answer in one google search and I’m far too lazy to do anymore than that, so I’m asking here.

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    That’s a very big basketball court. And it’s green.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    @ What: Ummm, actually no, that’s not what it’s about. But I see where you’re coming from. I agree with you on the hypocrisy of different cultures in preferring certain mammals over others. I don’t see what point you’re trying to make with that, though. You don’t think Mike Vick deserves punishment for a crime even you, a Hindu, find repulsive, because there are others out there who commit the same crimes with impunity? Color me confused.
    Any laws that protect animals–any animals–from cruelty should be adhered to because they have a GOOD reason for existing. Those that aren’t protected also deserve protection, but that doesn’t mean we should rescind all protection, period, just to make things equal. That’s ensuring equal cruelty, not equal humanity.

  • http://sdklflc.com Jukai

    Teddy: I really hate that logic too. Because other criminals cheat the system, we should forget about people who committed lesser crimes and not punish them?
    Some guy kidnapped and molested a child? Awwww let him go, there was some woman in Florida who KILLED her child and got away with it, this guy is nothing.

    You know, Vick didn’t really do his time for animal cruelty. I mean, I’ve seen people commit far more egregious examples of animal cruelty, like stuffing a kitten into a Pringles can to die, and get suspended sentences. His time was for something else, I think the interstate trafficking stuff or something.
    And the point made by What, was that the decision that killing some animals is cool, and other animals is evil, is based on cultural biases, not some human standard of decency. Dogs have protected status here, deer, pigs, cows and chickens to name a few, do not. So the idea of forcing dogs to fight each other seems horrible, the thought of cramming livestock in tiny cages while they are force fed before death does not.
    What’s humane and inhumane depends somewhat on where you live and what you believe. I think that fighting dogs is wrong because that’s not how we should treat animals. But, I also don’t care that most of the protein on my plate had a short and painful life before it was slain for me to eat. It’s a weird setup.

  • staywierd38

    Allen: Yeah, he got a short sentence if it was for running an illegal dog ring. They kind of gave him something in between.
