RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Yesterday, the managing director for the agency representing Michael Vick announced that the Eagles quarterback had a new deal with Nike.

Today, Nike said "no he doesn't", adding that it has merely agreed to supply product to the former Hokie as they do with a number of athletes who are not under contract with the company.

Nike signed Vick as a rookie in 2001, and terminated his contract in August of 2007 after he filed a plea agreement admitting his involvement in a dogfighting ring.
