Marcus Vick, who is the younger brother of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick, offered a $1,000 bounty to a defensive player to light up Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper with a hit. Cooper drew headlines on Wednesday when video emerged of him using a despicable racial slur at a Kenny Chesney concert.
After Marcus’ comments went viral, he tried to backtrack.
“My page was hacked!” he wrote in a since-deleted tweet.
Not even the biggest Vick fan in the world was buying that line. But then Vick said he was going to delete his Twitter:
Ok ok my girl is deleting my twitter. You guys have fun. Enjoy & be safe I'm out! ✌

Vick hasn’t deleted his account yet, but he should probably consider it. After all, look at all the times it’s gotten him in trouble:
- - Marcus Vick sends homophobic tweet about Arizona Cardinals
– Marcus Vick lobbies for Eagles to trade his brother
– Marcus Vick takes shot at Andy Reid
– Marcus Vick went ballistic over the George Zimmerman verdict
