The former star quarterback was named one of four captains for the upcoming Jan. 27 game, along with Terrell Davis, Darrell Green and Bruce Smith. .

There are so many players that have made amazing contribution[s] to society, however Michael Vick is not one of them, Via Change.org.

Michael Vick should not be placed in a position of honor - the dogs who were tortured and killed deserve to be remembered and honored. Not the man who played a part in their suffering, Via AnimalVictory.org. The accusations made in the petitions are in reference to Vick’s 2007 conviction of killing dogs and promoting dog fighting. . Vick was subsequently suspended from the NFL and given a 23-month prison sentence. He returned to the league in 2009, playing on the Philadelphia Eagles for an additional seven seasons
