The name Michael Vick would forever be remembered by football lovers who saw him play 13 seasons in the National Football League, NFL. He was primarily with the Atlanta Falcons and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Michael Vick is a retired American professional football player who has a net worth of $15 million dollars, this is a fairly substantial figure considering the fact that his legal troubles forced him to file for bankruptcy just over 10 years ago.

Who Exactly is Michael Vick and How Did His Journey Begin?

Michael Vick was born on June 26, 1980, in Newport News, Virginia as Michael Dwayne Vick to Brenda Vick and Michael Boddie.

While his father worked long hours in the shipyards as a sandblaster and spray-painter, his mother worked two jobs, obtained public financial assistance, and received help from her parents to support the family.

Vick, the second of his parent’s four children along with his siblings were raised in a public housing project plagued with gangsterism. Owing to that, Vick found football as a means of getting off the streets. From his days at Homer L. Ferguson High School, he quickly established himself as a talent to watch.

With a football scholarship, Vick made his way to Virginia Tech, where he played college football and was selected by the Falcons as the first overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft.

During his time at the Falcons, he transformed the quarterback position with his rushing abilities and was named to three Pro Bowls. He holds the record for the most career rushing yards by a quarterback (6,109) and the most rushing yards by a quarterback in a season (1,039).

Vick is one of only 3 athletes (others are Derek Jeter and Shaq O’Neal) to sign more than one $100 million+ contract in pro sports history but his career began to crumble in 2007 when he was found guilty of a dogfighting charge which took its toll on his earnings forcing him to file for bankruptcy. After almost 2 years behind bars, Vick made a comeback, signing up with the Eagles in 2009 and was with them for five years.

He enjoyed the greatest statistical season of his career with the Eagles and was named a fourth Pro Bowl in 2010. But, he had to leave the team as he wasn’t able to match his prior success. Before retiring in 2017, Vick played for the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers for one year each, basically as a backup. Although he never won a Super Bowl, he sure left indelible memories in the hearts of football lovers.

Analysis of His Net Worth, Career Earnings, and Salary

Michael Vick is currently estimated to be worth $15 million and he made his money through various means, prominently, through the contracts he signed and the endorsement deals he landed while in the NFL.

The Quarterback Made Almost $116 Million In On-field Pay

Vick’s professional career started off with a stronger foot as he became the first African-American in history to be selected with the top pick. The Atlanta Falcons selected him first in the first round of the 2001 NFL Draft. Vick inked a 6-year contract with the Falcons worth $62 million.

Three years into his initial contract, in 2004, his outstanding performance was rewarded with a 10-year $130 million contract extension. It reigned for years as the biggest contract in NFL history. At the peak of his career in 2006, Sports Illustrated estimated his annual earnings at $25.4 million from salary and endorsements.

Vick Had Various Endorsement Deals that Made Him Millions of Dollars

Nike was Vick’s most notable endorsement partner. It was no secret that he enjoyed a $2 million deal with the multinational corporation. The footballer would later start a sports clothing line called V7 with Nike in 2012 and has continued to benefit from his deal with the company even as an NFL retiree.

Apart from Nike, he had other sponsors like Unequal Technologies, MusclePharm, Coca-Cola, Electronic Arts, and Kraft. The figures involved were never disclosed but given the caliber of player he was, it is obvious that what he earned was significant.

He Has Been Making Money as a Coach and NFL Analyst Since He Retired

Michael Vick had made it clear he’d love to become a coach after he retires. He retired in June 2017 and that very year became a coaching intern with the Kansas City Chiefs under his former coach, Andy Reid.

The following year, precisely on the 25th of April 2018, the former footballer was hired by the Atlanta Legends of AFF (Alliance of American Football) to serve as their offensive coordinator.

In addition to his coaching duties, Vick serves as an NFL analyst for Fox Sports 1 on the popular sports television program, Fox NFL Kickoff. Through these means, Michael has continued to make money and sustain his wealth.

The Major Sources of Michael Vick’s Wealth 

  • Salaries he earned for his on-field performances in the NFL
  • Endorsement deals with Nike and other popular brands
  • Paychecks earned from his coaching duties
  • Income from the services he renders as an NFL analyst

How He Bounced Back from the Legal Issue that Left Him Bankrupt

Michael had had a few run-ins with the law over the years but none of them would trouble him like the Bad Newz Kennels dog fighting crime that ultimately landed him in prison. It was in April 2007 that the unlawful dogfighting activities were uncovered at Vick’s Surry County property in Virginia. Vick was indicted on federal felony charges that marked the beginning of his financial woes and was eventually sentenced to serve 23 months in federal prison.

In the wake of his dogfighting conviction, Vick’s top endorsement partners which included Coca-Cola, Electronic Arts, Kraft, and Nike all cut ties with him. As though that wasn’t enough, he was asked to refund a portion of his earnings to the Atlanta Falcons.

Multiple creditors also took turns to file lawsuits against him, forcing Vick to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. According to the filing, Vick declared less than $50 million in assets with debts between $10 and $50 million.

Return to NFL and Paying Off His Debts

After serving his 21-month sentence, the Philadelphia Eagles took a chance on him, signing him to a 1-year, $1.6 million contract that guaranteed nothing. This was followed by a 6-year $100 million contract in 2011 with $40 million guaranteed.

His endorsement portfolio was also revived as Nike re-signed him in 2011, making it the first time the sports company re-signed an athlete they had initially dropped on a moral clause. Football pad makers, Unequal Technologies, and MusclePharm also sponsored the resurrected quarterback.

With the $49 million he earned between 2010 and 2014, Vick was able to settle the bulk of his debts which had amounted to almost $18 million at that time and according to the reorganization plan, Vick was to pay his creditors in 6 years.

With over 50% of his earnings paid to Uncle Sam and legal fees, Vick was placed on an annual budget of $300,000. One of the biggest debts he had to pay was to his agent, Joel Segal whom he owed $800,000. By the end of 2014, Vick had paid off almost 90% of his total debts.

His Real Estate

After being sent to jail for operating a vicious dogfighting ring in his Virginia estate in 2007, Vick’s 15-acre Virginia property was sold and bought by a non-profit organization for $590,000. The property was then transformed into a rehab center named the Good Newz Rehabilitation Center for dogs. The property which once saw many animals beaten, abused, and even killed has now become a haven where dogs once maltreated are rehabilitated.

The Virginia property isn’t the only one the footballer has owned. In 2018, it was reported that the former footballer and his wife had acquired a 9,2800-square-foot property in Florida for $2.38 million. They would later list the home in 2020 asking for $2.4 million.

No, the Vicks isn’t selling their home because they are facing another financial trouble. It is said that they want to build a new home in South Florida that would suit the needs of the family.

Michael Met His Wife Kijafa Vick In 2002

  • Birth Name: Kijaha Frink
  • Date of Birth: December 15, 1980
  • Occupation: Reality TV Star and Entrepreneur
  • Duration of Marriage: 2012 – Present
  • No of Kids With Vick: 3 (Michael, Jada, and London Vicks)

The former NFL player is currently married to his longtime girlfriend, Kijafa Frink. The couple met for the first time in 2002 and have been together ever since. Kijaha was in college when she met Michael and as the story goes, they met in a Nightclub in January 2020.

Based on what she has disclosed, there was nothing spectacular about how they met: the footballer only walked up to her at the nightclub, got her number, and they started talking. In his 2012 autobiography, Vick related that things happened a bit differently. He had lost the number he collected and had to get it from one of Kijaha’s friend.

From what we gathered, Kijaha abandoned her studies after her romance with Vick started. But after the footballer was jailed in 2007, she went back to school to obtain her degree. Among other things, she did this because she needed to stop living in his shadow.

They Got Engaged In 2009 and Walked Down the Aisle in 2012

After Michael Vick regained his freedom in 2009, he engaged Kijafa that very year on her 29th birthday. In a surprise party he organized, which was filmed for The Michael Vick Project on BET, he asked her to marry him and they got engaged.

Kijaha and Michael eventually walked down the aisle in an extravagant ceremony at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach in 2012 – ten years after they first met but before then, they already had two daughters together (London and Jada).

Vick also has a son named Mitez from a previous relationship and the latest addition to the family in November 2017 makes the number of his children four.

Meet Michael Vick’s Kids

Mitez Vick

  • Date of Birth: July 10, 2002
  • Occupation: Undetermined
  • Mother: Tameka Taylor

Mitez is the oldest child of the footballer whom he had with his high school girlfriend named Tameka Taylor. Vick met Mitez’s mother while they were schooling at Warwick High School. Even though Vick and Tameka would come to part ways, they have always worked together to raise their kid. While it is not yet clear what he would do with his life, it is known that Mitez isn’t a big fan of sports.

Jada Vick

  • Date of Birth: October 12, 2004
  • Occupation: Undetermined
  • Mother: Kijafa Frink

Jada is the first child that Michael and his wife had together. Jada is still a teenager when this report was filed but her father once disclosed that she plays football and is quite good at it. In addition to that, Jada is good at basketball and might become a professional athlete in the future.

London Vick

  • Date of Birth: October 19, 2007
  • Occupation: Undetermined
  • Mother: Kijafa Frink

London is the third child of the American footballer and his second with Kijafa Frink. Like her older sister, the couple had her before they got married. Given her age, it is still early to tell what the future holds for London but she might pursue a career in the entertainment industry as she is artistically inclined.

Michael Vick Jr.

  • Date of Birth: November 20, 2017
  • Occupation: Undetermined
  • Mother: Kijafa Frink

Michael Jr. is the second son of the NFL star and his first with Kajafa. He is the baby of the family and that’s all that matters at the moment. Time would tell if he’s going to take after his father or build a career in another field.

Marcus Vicks Is the Most Popular of Michael’s Three Siblings

Vick has three siblings – an older sister named Christina and two younger siblings named Marcus and Courtney. His younger brother Marcus Vick was also a former NFL player who played for the Miami Dolphins.

While much isn’t known about Michael’s other siblings, Marcus is notorious a former NFL quarterback and wide receiver whose career was ruined by numerous criminal convictions.

From assaulting a police officer to molesting a minor, brandishing a firearm, dealing drugs, and what have you, Marcus had a long list of legal issues that made it impossible for him to have a decent NFL career. He was signed by the Miami Dolphins as an undrafted free agent after the 2006 NFL Draft but was released in May 2007.

How Tall is Michael Vick?

Sometime in June 2017, Vick was honored with a special retirement ceremony hosted by the Atlanta Falcons. In August the same year, Fox Sports announced that he will be joining its team as an NFL studio analyst for the 2017 season. Vick is 1.83 m in height and weighs 98 kg.
