Vick Does Not have a Deal with NIKE

Despite reports of it saying it was a done deal, Mike Vick does NOT have a new deal with NIKE:

A day after an official with the agency that represents Michael Vick told a crowded conference in New York City that Vick had recently re-signed with Nike [NKE 62.50 -2.20 (-3.4%) ], a Nike spokesman told CNBC that the company has no agreement with the backup Philadelphia Eagles quarterback.

“Nike does not have a contractual relationship with Michael Vick,” Nike spokesman Kejuan Wilkins said, in a statement. “We have agreed to supply product to Michael Vick as we do a number of athletes who are not under contract with Nike.”

On Wednesday, Mike Principe, the managing director of BEST, which represents Vick, announced that Nike was back with Nike. The comments were made at the Relay Sports Symposium in New York – an event hosted by the SportsBusiness Journal.

In 2007, Nike terminated Michael Vick’s contract after he was indicted on charges of running a dogfighting ring.
