Making a messy situation that much worse, Marcus Vick — younger brother of current Eagles QB Michael Vick — took to twitter to voice his opinion on Riley Cooper’s use of a racial slur (edited, but the originals still appear to be live on his twitter feed):
Marcus Vick had aspirations of playing in the NFL before legal issues and multiple arrests derailed his career before it started. Cooper’s use of the slur may indeed have been out of line, but putting a public bounty on his head when your older brother is still on the same roster isn’t very bright.
Plus, are we even sure Marcus Vick has $1k of his own to waste at the moment? Michael may want to give his baby bro a call and advise him to chill out a bit.
