NEW YORK (AP) - Michael Vick's new jersey number cost him $10,000 - all of it going to charity.
The New York Jets quarterback negotiated for the number with punter Ryan Quigley, who previously wore No. 1, during workouts and the two came to an agreement. Quigley gave it up on condition that Vick pay $10,000 for it and donate all of the money to charity.
''I think it's great that Ryan was willing to change as long as it was for a good cause,'' Vick said in a statement released by his publicist Monday night. ''I loved his idea.''
Vick plans to make a donation in Quigley's name to Teen Angel of North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina - Quigley is a North Myrtle Beach native - and to the Boys and Girls Club of New York.
