Conviction Dogs Michael Vick: PETA, Vick Brother Spar

Michael Vick signed a one-year, $5 million contract this weekend to play quarterback for the New York Jets. Geno Smith, who will be competing with the former Eagle and Falcon for the starting spot, reacted with an “awesome,” noting that he looks forward to having the veteran as a teammate.

But the signing didn’t please everybody.

“At least Michael Vick can’t drown, electrocute, hang, or shoot a football the way he terrorized man’s best friend,” barked the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals on Twitter over the weekend. Vick spent nearly two years in prison for operating a dog-fighting ring.

Marcus Vick, brother of the new Jets quarterback, believes it’s time to move on. He tweeted, “@peta y’all still on that bull$#!+,???? smh”–net lingo for scratching my head. The younger Vick, whose arrests curtailed his time at Virginia Tech, played briefly for the Miami Dolphins in 2006.
