Vick gets stimulus from Obama

Eagles Pro Bowl quarterback Michael Vick signed an endorsement deal with Unequal Technologies according to the Associated Press, which called it his first paid endorsement deal since he left prison.

Vick wore a specially engineered chest pad manufactured by Unequal Technologies after being knocked out of three games last season on a big hit. With the NFL wanting to mandate the use of thigh and similar pads in its bid to negotiate an 18-game season, having Vick as the face of cutting edge technology would be a coup for UT.

Additionally one of UT's spokespersons cited President Obama's endorsement of Vick as a guy who made the most of a second chance as another huge plus.

The face of Nike before going to prison on dogfighting chargers, Vick signed a two-year deal with Unequal Technologies.
