Michael Vick Chew Toy: The Only Thing You Can Still Buy With Vick's Name on It

You can't buy a Michael Vick jersey anymore. You can't buy his Nike shoes, you can't
buy Vick-related apparel from the NFL's online shop and you can't buy his stuff at sporting good stores.
So the Vick dog chew toy is just about the last thing you can purchase with Vick's name on it. The manufacturers explain:
Is it different you ask? You bet it is! The Vick Dog Chew Toy is made of state of the art "dog" material. The Vick Toy Doll is so strong and flexible, it will challenge even the most aggressive breeds. Especially Mike's Favorite Breed, The Pit Bull.
Unlike Vick, our manufacturer is so sure of its durability they guarantee it against the most aggressive dog destruction. It Bends. It Bounces. It Flies. It Floats. And best of all, it lasts through the whole season and more!
Vick and the NFL could probably sue to stop sales of this product, since it uses Vick's name and likeness and a Falcons jersey without permission. But the NFL might not want to call any more attention to the Vick case, and Vick's lawyers have more important things to do right now.
