YEAR: 2007
CRIME: Dog Fighting
SENTENCE / TIME SERVED: 23 months / 18 months
COMPLEX SAYS: Once the most electrifying player in the NFL (you peeped dude's ridiculousness in Madden 2004), Michael Vick made the Atlanta Falcons into a competitor before being arrested for dog fighting in April 2007. His involvement in the Bad Newz Kennels dog fighting ring led to a prison sentence and an estimated $135 million in lost revenue. After he was released in May 2009, Vick joined the Philadelphia Eagles as a back-up for Donovan McNabb. In 2010, he would lead Philly to a Wild Card playoff berth and win the Comeback Player of the Year award. It's safe to say he took 50's advice
