    Default Michael Vick spent $3.6 million in three months before going to jail

    (Not to worry, he'll make that back and then some next year when he's released!)

    Vick spent $3.6 million in three months before going to jail - Sports Rumor... - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

    According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick went on a spending spree in the months leading up to being jailed for dog fighting.
    The day he went to jail, Michael Vick bought a $99,000 Mercedes. He cashed four checks that totaled $24,900. He gave $28,000 to the mother of his oldest child. He paid a public relations firm $23,000 and gave a friend $16,000. Altogether on Nov. 19, 2007, Vick spent $201,840. But for the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback, the day was most remarkable for how it ended: behind bars, beginning what would be a nearly two-year sentence in a notorious dogfighting case.
    The day's spending, in fact, was but a small part of the $18.2 million that flew out of Vick's hands from 2006 to 2008, according to documents filed recently in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Norfolk, Va. Nearing the end of his time in federal prison, Vick, 28, is seeking the court's protection from his creditors.
    They are particularly interested in his increased spending in the three months before he reported for jail.
    The documents provide a detailed look at the privileged lifestyle of an athlete who rarely offered more than a glimpse of himself off the playing field. They show how Vick, who grew up poor in Newport News, Va., bought houses and cars, farms and horses, boats and jewelry, all at the height of a spectacular career that shattered after he was identified as the key figure in an illegal dogfighting ring.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he has a few million stashed somewhere. There is also the notoriety factor. Anything he can manage to hold on to could be sold for a nice stack.

    Sneaky and despicable. He would fit right in with Jerry Jones.
