Nike Suspends New Vick Product

ATLANTA (AP) _ Michael Vick's legal troubles have prompted Nike
to suspend the release of its latest product line named after the
Atlanta Falcons quarterback.
Nike tells retailers it will not release the Air Zoom Vick Five
this summer. A company spokesman says the four shoe products and
three shirts that currently bear Vick's name will remain in stores.
Vick will be arraigned next week in a Richmond, Virginia,
federal courtroom on charges of sponsoring a gruesome dogfighting
operation.
Nike still has a standing contract with Vick but the spokesman
declined to speculate on his future with the company.
