Mike Vick is gonna make it rain on the haters with this one!!

CNBC’s Darren Rovell reported on Friday that Nike and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick have agreed to a new deal, four years after Nike terminated its contract with Vick due to his arrest on dogfighting charges.

“Michael acknowledges his past mistakes,” Nike spokesman Derek Kent told Rovell. “We do not condone those actions, but we support the positive changes he has made to better himself off the field.”

Joel Segal, Vick’s agent, told CNBC that the star quarterback is “excited to have a long-term and strong relationship with Nike.”

Vick served 18 months in prison and two months of home confinement after pleading guilty to running a dogfighting operation in 2007.

The 31-year-old, who was once the highest-paid player in the NFL, signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009.

You hear that? It’s the sound of angry white people dog lovers going crazy.

Hate it or love it?!?!
