Bankruptcy Judge Frank Santoro approved a plan Thursday for Vick to repay $20 million to his creditors and emerge from bankruptcy on the condition that Vick retain a personal financial planner to manage his fuure earning with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Santoro says while Vick is "at the pinnacle of his profession," he has proven unable in the past to manage his finances. The plan was overwhelmingly approved in a ballot by the creditors.
Vick, 29, hustled away from the courthouse with his fiancee, Kijafa Frink, to catch a flight back to Philadelphia and make his debut with the Eagles in a preseason game.
"I'm happy it's over. I can move on with my life," Vick said.
"I'm excited about the game," he said. Asked if he was nervous, he said, "Not at all."
