Michael Vick gets another endorsement deal

Vick_250 Michael Vick's image rehabilitation continues with another endorsement deal, the second of his post-prison NFL career.

The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback will pitch the Core Synergy performance wristband for Lutte Licensing Group, which makes and distributes the titanium-infused product.

Earlier this year Vick signed a two-year deal with Unequal Technologies, a provider of the football pads he wore during much of the 2010 season.

Once the highest-paid player in the NFL, Vick had numerous endorsement deals during his six seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. But he lost it all after being convicted on dogfighting charges in 2007.

After serving 18 months in federal prison, Vick returned to the NFL in 2009 and had a breakthrough season in 2010, leading the Eagles to the NFC East title while earning Associated Press comeback player of the year honors and finishing second to New England's Tom Brady in the MVP vote.
