Michael Vick (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/player/69083)'s legal troubles prompted Nike on Thursday to suspend the release of its latest product line named after the Atlanta Falcons (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/team/67038) quarterback.


Nike has told retailers it will not release a fifth signature shoe, the Air Zoom Vick V, this summer. Nike spokesman Dean Stoyer said the four shoe products and three shirts that currently bear Vick's name will remain in stores.

They have to wait until his contract expires.

You mean they didn't protect themselves so they could drop him if anything came up?
I understand they don't want to just drop him sense he has yet to be charged, but you'd think they have something written into his contract that allows them to cut him lose. Anytime you are paying someone to be the face of your company, you would think they would be able to cut ties with him when he brings negative attention to your company.
