PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - NFL Comeback Player of the Year winner Michael Vick will find out Wednesday if he will win a coveted endorsement deal with EA Sports.

After serving 21 months in federal prison for his involvement in dogfighting, there were few who thought that Vick would ever nail down another big time endorsement. Yet, here he is, a finalist along with Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis, to be the cover athlete for Madden NFL 12.

Tom Geddy of EA Sports says the voting concludes Wednesday afternoon.

“The winner will be announced on ESPN’s SportsNation Wednesday afternoon and then we have a full fledge of stuff for them to do Wednesday and Thursday beginning with the cover shoot in New York and a then a full PR stint with late night shows and all those pieces.”

Vick has survived weeks of online fan voting that began with the original field of 32 players — a remarkable achievement — says local sports agent Gerald Colten.

“I think it shows how he is thought of now and that has really resurrected his image and if he continues to play at the level he’s playing the sky’s the limit for him.”

Vick has a history with EA Sports, having graced the cover of Madden 04 during his days with the Atlanta Falcons.
