Michael Vick Net Worth 2020, Biography, Education, and Career.
Michael Vick Net Worth 2020 – Michael Vick born Michael Dwayne Vick is the offensive coordinator for the Atlanta Legends of the Alliance of American Football.
He is a former American football quarterback who played 13 seasons in the National Football League.
He was born on 26 June 1980 in Newport News, Virginia, United States. He is son to Michael Boddie, his father, and Brenda Vick, his mother.
He is also brother to Courtney Vick, Marcus Vick, and Christina Vick.
His wife is Kijafa Vick with whom he has four children; two boys and two girls. They are London Vick (daughter), Jada Vick (daughter), Mitez Vick (son), Michael Vick Jr. (son).
Like his father, who gave him his first football at the age of three, Vick showed an early talent for the game.
At Warwick High School, Vick grew close to the football team’s coach, Tommy Reamon, a former World Football League star.
Reamon pushed Vick to work on his passing skills and hit the weight room to add bulk to his skinny frame.
Plagued by a weak offensive line, Reamon encouraged Vick to take advantage of his blazing speed by scrambling out of the QB pocket and improvising the team’s offense.
Vick flourished under his coach’s tutelage and by his senior year, Vick, who throws left but is actually right-handed, was considered one of the top high school quarterbacks in the country.
Turning down an offer to go to Syracuse University, Vick chose to stay closer to home and sign on with Virginia Tech in nearby Blacksburg. There, the highly touted Vick did not disappoint.
After redshirting his freshmen year, the 19-year-old quarterback led the Hokies to an undefeated season and a spot in the Sugar Bowl where they fell against Florida State in the national title game.
Vick was named the Big East’s Offensive Player of the Year and finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting.
Vick, however, didn’t give baseball any serious thought. Instead, he bypassed the final two years of college to play in the NFL.
In desperate need of a quarterback and a star, the Atlanta Falcons traded up to the No. 1 slot in the 2001 NFL draft and nabbed him.
Vick’s reward for turning pro was a six-year, $62 million contracts that included a $15 million signing bonus.
Playing sparingly his rookie year, Vick took over Atlanta’s starting quarterback job the following season, leading the Falcons to the playoffs and earning a spot in the Pro Bowl.
After an injury-shortened his 2003 season, Vick and his teammates captured the NFC South crown in 2004, losing to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.
The script seemed to be going as planned. The Falcons were now title contenders and Vick was the franchise QB the club had yearned for.
That season, team officials handed Vick a lavish 10-year, $130 million contract extension.
Michael Vick has an estimated net worth of $16 million
