In what could be the first step toward a major endorsement deal for the embattled quarterback, Michael Vick signed on with Nike to wear the new Jordan Retro 3 sneaker in exchange for $149.99 at a local Foot locker on Wednesday.

“I just want to thank Nike for taking a chance and allowing me to buy their shoe,” Vick said after signing the contract with Nike and handing it to the cashier. “I really think this agreement works out for both of us and hopefully it leads to bigger and better things in the future, like a discount or something.”

Terms of Vick’s deal with Nike include a 30-day, money back guarantee and a chance to win $1,000 for taking a quick online survey.

Nike just supplying Vick with a bunch of funky, unwanted shoes

Michael Vick’s agent reported earlier this week that his client had signed a sponsorship deal with Nike. Nike has now come forward deny those claims and say the company is only supplying Michael Vick with a couple truckloads of funky, outdated shoes and nothing more.

“Nike does not have a contractual relationship with Michael Vick,” Nike said in a statement on Thursday. “We have merely agreed to dump a truckload of worn-out shoes on Vick to give him an idea of what we think he’s worth right now. And that has nothing to do with the dogfighting stuff, either. He’s just a garbage football player right now. Now, if when he starts finding the end zone, we’ll be all over him like stank on chitlins again.”
