Retired athlete and reality star of VH1’s Baller Wives, Michael Vick joins conservative news channel affiliate Fox Sports.
Former NFL baller, convicted dog abuser and now reality star ‘Baller Wives’, Michael Vick joins Fox Sports. Fox Sports has hired former NFL quarterback Michael Vick to be an in-studio football analyst for the upcoming season, an individual with knowledge of the hiring told TheWrap.
Vick will appear on “Fox NFL Kickoff,” which is the lead-in show for “Fox NFL Sunday.” He’ll also make appearances on various FS1 shows.
Michael Vick made headlines in the past weeks after giving “advice” to Colin Kaepernick in order to get a job by saying, “the first thing we got to get Colin to do is cut his hair. I don’t think he should represent himself in that way in terms of the hairstyle. Just go clean cut. Why not?” Despite being convicted with animal abuse for dogfighting, serving time in prison, losing his NFL job, and filing for bankruptcy, Vick claims the comments were from his own experience rehabbing his image after receiving a 23-month sentence on dogfighting charges. He was released having served only 18 months in federal prison in Leavenworth, KS.
In 2009, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell embraced and reinstated Vick into the NFL with Philadelphia Eagles with a base salary of $1.6 million for the first season. Under a court mandated bankruptcy agreement that extends to 2015, much of Vick’s salary goes to pay off debts he accumulated prior to his incarceration.
The retired athlete is currently a reality star on VH1’s spin off show Baller Wives alongside his wife Kijafa Vick.
