The NFL surprised Michael Vick with the ultimate perk on Tuesday: the 4,200-square-foot presidential suite at the official hotel of the Pro Bowl. It was a reflection of just how far the player who used to be a pariah has come.
There are 86 players at the coastline resort on the west side of Oahu, the elitist of the NFL's elite, save for the six Green Bay Packers and four Pittsburgh Steelers who were invited but will be playing in the Super Bowl. As evidenced by his posh digs, Vick is hands-down the headliner.
He is the player all of the other Pro Bowlers want to see, and no one, regardless of the size of his traveling party, begrudged Vick the palatial suite.
