Famous for: Quarterback for Atlanta Falcons, top pick in the 2001 NFL draft. In 2004 he became the highest paid player in the NFL with 130 million dollar deal.
What went wrong? All that money and what does he do – arranges illegal dog fighting matches and some gambling on the side. In April last year dog fighting facilities were found at his estate in Virginia and Vick was sentenced to 23 months in jail, but he also has 2 state felony charges hanging and if convicted he might face up to 10 years in jail.
In August Vick was suspended indefinitely by the NFL. Vick had to repay almost 20 million dollars to the Atlanta Falcons for the bonus he received and all of his endorsements have been terminated. His future is still unknown until the pending trial in April this year.
