The only downside to Michael Vick's 2010 redemption season (everyone's happy for him -- did you hear?) is that he's not making a "ton" of money, relative to his performance on the field and how much he used to make.

He'll likely recoup some of that Sunday and in the next several weeks -- CBS Sports' Charley Casserly reported on The NFL Today that Vick's getting a bonus for playing in 51 percent (or more) of the snaps through nine games, and another bonus for doing the same through 11 games.

"He will get $850,000 for playing 51% or more of the plays in nine games," Casserly said. "Tonight's game against the Cowboys is his ninth game of the year. And he gets $1.9 million if he does it in 11 games."

Now, Vick would probably prefer that any details about his financial situation be kept out of the public's eye as he still owes lots of creditors, and there's a good chance that when we say he makes a million or so, he's actually "making" about a third of that, if not less.

But there's also a good chance that any future contract Vick receives will have playing time and personal conduct incentives littered throughout the deal, so unlocking these is something he should plan to get used to.

And besides, before the season started, both he and the Eagles were probably convinced that was simply dead money.

Bob the fan, go somewhere with your hatred, now the man did his time and debt to society and admit his wrong. He is doing volunteer time speaking about the criminal act of dog fighting throughout the city. What more do you and others like those commentators have to still bring it up "Mike Vick went to jail for dog fighting" It's been over 3 years, WE THE PUBLIC KNOW ALREADY" I guess when there is nothing else to talk about for ratings, they bring the Micheal Vick..... story up again and again. Now back to you, now why don't you go speak about those politicians who get pop for stealing and embazzlement. The real criminals are the ones who got the economy screwed up.

Only a jerk to you.   Love that he is able to do so and piss off people like you with just plain hatred in their hearts.   Go cry on another board.

Vick was a bargain this year. He is definitely worth every penny he gets and he should become one of the top 3 highest paid quarterbacks in the league.  The question is, has philly started negotiations on a long term deal? and what about kolb? and the most important question is where will vick decide to go? He would flourish in south beach!!! The dolphins are not going to win with henne and he fits the system perfectly. Vick has paid his debt to society and is now playing the best ball of his career, and yes he is worth every dime and good to see someone come from where he has been to where he is now...kudos michael vick...enjoy your success on and off the field.  Welcome Back!!!!
