Michael Vick has signed his first national endorsement deal since going to jail with Unequal Technologies, which is a company that makes football pads that supposedly “reduce harmful impact shock”. They made a chest protector which Vick wore to protect his ribs when he returned to the starting lineup.
This is his first endorsement deal since spending a couple years in the penitentiary because the agreement he had with Woodbury Nissan was a trade. Vick did the commercial and for it he was able to drive.
He has signed a two-year deal with Unequal Technologies, according to the Associated Press.
“We’re real excited about it,” chief executive officer Rob Vito said earlier this week. “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.”
The details of the deal are still unknown, but Vito and his company believe they’ve made a great move in hooking up with Vick.
“We believe it was worth it,” he said, “because of Michael Vick and how he can shed light on the technology of our products.”
The Associated Press article included a statement from Vick.
“The Unequal technology is a part of my game now and I won’t play without my Unequal,” Vick said in the statement. “Unequal’s protective power gives me a whole new level of confidence in my game. It makes me feel invincible.”
Regardless of how good this companies pads are, Vick is going to miss games if he continues taking the hits he did this season. He needs to stop feeling invincible.
Maybe this pads are the problem. LOL
