Michael Vick in Deep (Dog) $h!t With Nike, Reebok

by at . Comments

Doggone it, Michael Vick is in deep crap.

Bad plays on words aside, the troubled, disturbed Atlanta Falcons quarterback is being called out by his endorsement partners for his alleged role in a dogfighting ring.

The Washington Post reports that Michael Vick has been suspended from endorsement deals with Nike, Reebok and a trading card company, thanks to the federal dogfighting indictment against him.

Gosh, no one has had this much trouble with an animal since Usher and Tameka Foster.

This week, Nike suspended Michael Vick without pay, saying in a statement:

"Nike is concerned by the serious, highly disturbing allegations made against Michael Vick, and we consider any cruelty to animals inhumane and abhorrent."

Perhaps bowing to pressure from groups like PETA, the Nike vowed to stop selling Michael Vick-related products but will not to terminate his contact until his case is filed.

Reebok, meanwhile, opted to stop selling Vick's jersey, as has the NFL, which has suspended sales of Vick's #7 jersey. Donruss trading card company has also yanked Vick's card.

Don't worry, fans. You can still get Matt Leinart trading cards! Brynn Cameron may take issue with his parenting, but you don't see Leinart standing around watching pit bulls get hosed down and strapped into crude electrocution devices, do you?

No, you don't.
