Michael Vick talks off-season preperation as he starts his own clothing line.
Eagles QB Michael Vick is expanding his portfolio by getting into the clothing business. Vick has entered into an agreement with sporting goods store Modell’s to sell and distribute his V7 line which will donate a portion of its profits to the Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia.
The sportswear line is said to include t-shirts and other sports apparel according to the Miami Herald.
Vick is working with celebrity fashion pioneer Ruby Azrak and Brian Sher formerly of the ICM talent agency.
The move comes as Vick prepares for the upcoming season. In a statement to Players View, Vick expressed his feelings on how the Eagles off-season preparation will help them get better.
“We just feel like we just need to go out and compete this year. Mentally, we have to gear ourselves up to go out and be the best that we can be.
We didn’t have this opportunity to be together last year, and now we have this chance to build this camaraderie every day and to have fun while we’re doing it. We’re all learning and we have all our coaches here.
[Offensive line] coach Howard [Mudd] is here after being gone the past four-five months, get him back and have him around. We’re all pumped up again.”
Vick was also quick to point out that the Eagles must achieve more than they did in 2011-2012.
“For us, we just feel like we should have accomplished a lot last year. Like I said, we just want to have fun and be the best that we can be. We want to work hard to get there. We know it’s not going to be easy, but we’re going to work at it.”
