If there was a list of washed-up athletes who need to get off Twitter, Marcus Vick would be at the top of it. Marcus, who is the younger brother of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, is known for tweeting incredibly dumb stuff and putting his brother in uncomfortable situations because of it. He was back at it again on Thursday afternoon, albeit with an interesting twist.
After catching wind of the racist remark Riley Cooper made at a Kenny Chesney concert earlier this summer (video here), Marcus took to Twitter to offer $1,000 to the first NFL safety who lights the Eagles receiver up this season.
Hey I'm putting a bounty on Riley's head. 1k to the first Free Safety or Strong safety that light his ass up! Wake him up please…..

Vick also called Cooper a bunch of four-letter words that we blurred out for our PG audience:
While you can understand why everyone is angry with Cooper (even Michael Vick’s obnoxious brother), flipping out over it on Twitter and offering to pay people to hurt him accomplishes nothing. How about we let the adults handle the big people problems?Google+
