Besides this article, Vick has recently faced some other public issues regarding an endorsement and tell-all book written by a supposed lover of his in the past. Quibids released Vick as their endorser after the backlash they received after Vick did a Facebook and tweet promoting their website. Quibids gave this statement “As most employees here at QuiBids are dog owners, we want you to know we would never, ever condone animal abuse, and we’re sorry that our recent actions did not reflect our values.” Meanwhile Vick’s spokesman, Chris Shigas, stated that Vick never had a contract with Quibids and was asked by a third party to do the message.
Incidents such as this one can really make it hard for teams to make Vick the starting quarterback when he is attached to a lot of public backlash. But two questions still remain. After seven years should Vick be forever punished or should people allow him to be a changed man? And what team will pick him up as a starting quarterback? Hopefully, we will at least have the answer to the second question very soon.
