Michael Vick -- In 2007, the NFL star was sentenced to 23 months in prison after pleading guilty to a dogfighting conspiracy charge. The former No. 1 draft pick filed for bankruptcy in 2008 and in 2009, the Atlanta Falcons cut ties with him. Since then, however, Vick has made a comeback with the Philadelphia Eagles and other teams.
