Michael Vick is a NFL legend and should be allowed to be a NFL Pro Bowl Captain.

 


Michael Vick played 13 seasons in the National Football League, primarily with the Atlanta Falcons and the Philadelphia Eagles. He played college football at Virginia Tech and was selected by the Falcons as the first overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft. During his six years with the Falcons, Vick was regarded as having transformed the quarterback position with his rushing abilities and was named to three Pro Bowls. He holds the record for the most career rushing yards by a quarterback (6,109) and the most rushing yards by a quarterback in a season (1,039).

 


In 2007 Vick pleaded guilty for his involvement in a dog fighting ring and spent 21 months in federal prison. His arrest and subsequent conviction garnered Vick’s notoriety with the general public, which lasted throughout the rest of his career. 

 


Vick and three others were convicted of federal conspiracy charges and imprisoned. He was suspended by the NFL and ordered to pay the Atlanta Falcons back a portion of his earnings. He lost endorsement deals worth millions.

 


Michael Vick paid his debt to society. To take this away from him would reward bullies who have been bullying this man for years.

 


Reward Michael Vick for the work he has done on the football field. Please allow Michael Vick to be honored in the 2020 NFL Pro Bowl,  to mentor players and be on the sideline during games.
