In 2001, Michael Vick became the first African American quarterback to be selected number one overall in the NFL Draft.  He made the Pro Bowl four times in his career.  He played six seasons for the Atlanta Falcons until a felony conviction, involving an illegal interstate dog fighting ring, landed him in prision for nearly two years.  When Vick was released from prison, he was picked up by the Philadelphia Eagles.  In 2010, he earned NFL Comeback Player of the Year and in August 2011, he announced his new six-year contract with the Eagles.
