Jeff Lurie’s Wife Wanted Michael Vick on the Roster

Writer Michael David Smith says that the owners of the Eagles Jeff Lurie and his wife Christina Lurie usually leave the decisions up to Mr. Lurie. However, when Michael Vick was released from prison for his time served for the dog fighting, Mrs. Lurie went to bat for him.

The Philadelphia Inquirer’s series that focused on the Eagles and Christina Lurie points out that after 17 years of standing by her husband, she voiced her opinion on football.
