Michael Vick plans to work 40 hours a week at a construction company upon his release from prison, according to statements Vick’s lawyer made in a bankruptcy court appearance yesterday. I saw this on TMZ first, and thought, “Maybe they got him mixed up with these people,” and then when I saw it over here. But dude owes everybody money and the feds wanted him to outline his plan to pay everyone back. So his lawyers did it for him. They’ve gotta be getting paid, right?
Lawer Michael Blumenthal told US Bankruptcy Judge Frank J. Santoro that Vick, once the highest-paid player in the NFL, is “going to change the way he lives his life.”
Vick’s plan would allow him to keep the first 750,000 dollars of his salary should he find a club interested in him and make a deal. Creditors would claim part of any additional income.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Vick–who is still under contract with the Atlanta Falcons–will be paid $600,000 for starring in a documentary. Possible working title: Four Legs And A Funeral? If they could get Frankie Muniz to play the dog, this whole thing could spin in Vick’s favor. Nobody likes that kid.
