Money woes are hitting everyone these days, including highly paid professional athletes. Former NFL star Michael Vick has agreed to pay the Atlanta Falcons at least $6.5 million as part of his bankruptcy case, according to USA Today. The settlement was reached ahead of Vick's bankruptcy hearing in Virginia on Thursday. Vick arrived in his home state Monday afternoon and was being held at a jail in Suffolk, Virginia. The Falcons are trying to trade the suspended quarterback, who is still barred from the NFL as he serves out a nearly two-year sentence for operating a gruesome dogfighting ring. —BB
