Michael Vick

Scores in Prison!

4/7/2008 11:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0407_vick_bars-1Just when you thought Michael Vick's football career was over, he's resurrected it once again in the joint.

Apparently, Leavenworth's most athletic inmate is showing off his moves on the field, er, jail yard, and is quarterbacking the prison football team. Falcons owner Arthur Blank tells the NY Daily News, the disgraced baller is adjusting as well as he can to prison life, and is staying busy by doing dishes and writing letters.

For his toil and trouble as a dishwasher, Vick gets about 12 cents an hour. In his last season with the Falcons, Vick raked in $1.4 million, all part of a 10-year, $130 million contract that he signed in 2004.

He's set for release in July of 2009.

Its called use the talents god gave you to make life better for yourself and maybe a little better for others. If he can do some good while in prison then more power to him. Its better than sitting on your rear end doing nothing...or washing dishes etc. GOOD JOB Mr Vick.

Michael Vick is the man. Dogs are the most annoying animals on this planet and good for him. We need more people like him to thin out the mutt populating.

Stick~TMZ needs to thin you out! You are one sick human being................


I agree with Barbara, that is to much money for him to receive for working in the kitchen. Frankly, I don't think he should be receiving a cent. Why is he getting out so soon? Where is the justice in all this?

Hang in there Vick. God bless you and your family. We know you made a mistake just like the rest of us. One thing here is that if you kill a human being instead of dogs, people wouldn't hate you this much. In this country, dogs have more value than human. So, lesson to learn here is whatever you do, don't mess with dogs.
Keep doing positive thing, and focus on the future. We all make mistake, keep praying, God will forgive you.

He shouldn't even be getting .12 an hour, he should be paying money to Pitbull Rescues! I should be allowed to play football until he's released. THose Pitbulls don't get to go outside and play ball, their dead!

FIRST HE WAS CRUEL TO ANIMALS AND HE BROKE THE LAW HE SHOULD RECIEVE NOTHING, WORK HIS ASS OFF CLEANING TOLIETS AND THEN STICK HIM BACK IN A HOLE. PEOPLE IN PRISON GET IT TO EASY WITH TV AND CLASSES, MAKE THEM SUFER FOR DOING SOMETHING WRONG,HES PROBELY A HERO AND GETS SPECIAL TREATMENT, LETS PUT HIM IN A CELL WITH ABSUSED PIT BULLS FOR HIS TERM

It's good to hear he is playing in prison. Two years off the field definately wouldn't be good for his career when he gets out. If he keeps his skills up I have no doubt he will be able to play again.

Dallas, I am a sick human being because I do not like dogs? Do you like roaches and spiders? what about snakes? Snakes are a lot less irritating than dogs are.
Massa, You like to imagine people in jail having butt sex don't you.. From your interesting verbal tone it seems a fantasy of yours. Is someone close to you in jail? It is haunting to think of what is happening to him behind closed doors.
I am an ignorant son of a bitch because I do not like dogs? Sounds like you have anger issues pal and touching your filthy dogs on their private parts will never be okay, jot that down as a reminder.
