Bow Wow should be careful though because Vick doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to financial investments.
Despite the fact that he has signed million dollar contracts with the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles, Vick declared himself bankrupt in 2008, after creditors discovered that he had debts of between $10 million and $50 million.
Poor management, bad investments and lawsuits drained Vick’s finances, and then this news was compounded when he was imprisoned for 21 months after he admitted his involvement in an illegal dog fighting ring that had been in operation for five years.
Meanwhile, the 33-year-old former quarterback might have to juggle his new commitment while working for either the New York Jets, or Tampa Bay Buccaneers after he was linked to the two teams over the last few days.
