Dick's Doesn't Sell Jerseys Worn by,..Well,...You Know,..

CHERRY HILL, N.J. - Michael Vick may be an Eagle, but a green No. 7 jersey may be hard to come by in some places.

That's because Dick's Sporting Goods will not be stocking or selling them.

A spokesperson for the sporting goods retailer announced that the chain won't carry the Vick jerseys until it "evaluates the reaction of Eagle fans," Fox 29's Nefertiti Jaquez reported from outside the Dick's in Cherry Hill on Thursday morning.

Of course, the former Atlanta Falcons star quarterback was released from federal prison in May after serving 18 months for that dogfighting conviction.

One week ago, the Eagles signed him to a one-year contract with a club option for a second year.

And that signing has polarized the Eagles' fans and triggered a storm of controversy across the Delaware Valley and across the country.

That was enough, folks said at Dick's, to make them not want to sell the jersey.

A jersey with a cartoon of Michael Vick being torn limb from limb by a couple of pit bulls would probably be a best-seller!
