We can predict some things about Michael Vick on the field. We know that he is going to have some plays throughout the season that make you jump up and say “wow!” We also know that he will miss time due to injury. Considering he has missed 4 games each of the last two seasons, drastic measures had to be taken to protect the $100 million dollar quarterback.
Enter Unequal Technologies has constructed a protective vest that their CEO guarantees will protect Vick from injury:
“I guarantee he will not get hurt,” Rob Vito, CEO of Unequal Technologies, told ESPN.com on Wednesday.
Unequal Technologies uses what Vito says is a military-grade, battle-tested composite material that has DuPont Kevlar to protect athletes from on-field injuries.
“What Michael is wearing was born on the battlefield and forged on the gridiron,” Vito said.
Vito, who signed the first new endorsement deal with Vick after he returned to the league following his prison sentence, said his company fitted Vick on Friday with its “EXO Skeleton” compression shirt that has two rib protectors on either side.
I actually think it is smart for Vick and the Eagles to explore their options since Vick’s ribs seem to snap crackle and pop more than Rice Krispies. This is great advertising for this company if this can keep him on the field for a full season. If not, Nick Foles better get ready.
