Michael Vick Has Nearly Made His Way Out Of Bankruptcy Debt

BANKRUPTCY_NASHVILLEAfter racking up a massive debt of nearly $18 million and then filing for bankruptcy, Michael Vick has nearly made his way to being completely debt-free.

In July of 2008, Vick had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy after racking up nearly $18 million in debt.  At the time, he was currently in federal prison for dog-fighting charges.

After getting out of jail and back in the game, Vick had lived on a restricted budget of $300,000 a year, redirecting more than 50% of his income to paying off the debt.

Although $300,000 isn’t a small number by any means, Vick had earned more than $49 during the five-year period from 2010-2014 while playing four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and one season with the New York Jets.

At this point, Vick has repaid more than $15 million of his accrued debt, leaving a small percentage left to tack off in order to be completely debt-free.
