Default Re: Mike Vick, doing your drywall work.

Blumenthal said when Vick is released, he plans to work 40 hours a week for a construction company. He did not disclose the wage or give any other details about the type of work that Vick will be performing.

I'm not sure I get it. Financially, I'd think the better option would be to spend as much time as possible training and getting back in NFL game shape. Granted, I don't know much about the construction industry, but I'm pretty sure NFL players still make much more money.
And what, exactly, is Vick supposed to live on while he's "training to get back into NFL game shape," assuming any team in its right mind is going to take a chance on him to begin with? From what I understand, he's pretty much wiped out financially. After all, isn't that the reason one usually attends a BANKRUPTCY HEARING?
