Michael Vick Helps Launch New Padding For Head Injuries

Michael Vick will have new padding to protect him from all those crunching hits. Unequal Technologies, a provider of the football pads Vick wore most of last season, released a product Wednesday designed to help prevent concussions and other head injuries. Vick, the Eagles’ Pro Bowl quarterback, took a break from his busy summer to pitch the new gear along with representatives from the company.

In January, Vick became Unequal’s first corporate spokesman when he signed his first paid endorsement contract since his release from prison. “I haven’t had problems with concussions in the past, knock on wood, so hopefully that won’t happen in the future,” Vick said, “but I will wear the padding in the helmet to prevent concussions and hopefully a lot of players in the league will do the same thing.”
