Michael Vick Signing: Winners & Losers
CNBC.com | August 14, 2009 | 09:30 AM EDT

For every action, there is a reaction. Here are the winners and losers from Michael Vick signing with the Philadelphia Eagles.

WINNERS

Michael Vick: Some people, including me, thought Vick would be starring in the United Football League this Fall. In the Eagles, Vick will get as legitimate of a quick second chance as he could have hoped.

Joel Segal: I also thought that Vick's prospects would be so bleak that Segal, his agent, would get him the veteran minimum of $1.38 million for two years. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported the deal was worth $1.6 million in year one, with a team option of $5.2 million in the second year.

Philadelphia Eagles: The early read on things is that most fans are ecstatic about the Vick pickup. Perhaps a few will ask to get a refund for their season tickets in protest, but the majority seem to be happy with the move. The Eagles have had some good disaster PR training over the last few years, so if they handle Vick right they can help him silence the critical noise.

Con-Way Freight : This $5 billion freight transportation and logistics services company based in California is the logo on the Eagles banner backdrop. They should get a nice publicity pop today.
