Marcus Deon Vick (born March 20, 1984 in Newport News, Virginia) is a former collegiate and professional American football quarterback and wide receiver who is currently a free agent.

He is the younger brother of suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, who also began playing high school football in Newport News Public Schools. After accepting full scholarship to attend Virginia Tech, Marcus played quarterback for the team. However, he was suspended for the entire 2004 season due to two criminal convictions. After a conditional reinstatement, he started every game in the 2005 season, but was involved in several highly-publicized incidents during the season, including the display of his middle finger to the crowd and violently stomping the leg of an opponent, as well as having additional traffic arrests. In early 2006, he was dismissed from the Virginia Tech football program "due to a cumulative effect of legal infractions and unsportsmanlike play". Vick then declared himself eligible for the NFL spring draft in 2006, but was not selected. He was later signed by the Miami Dolphins as an undrafted free agent but was released from the team on May 1, 2007.

His legal troubles continued after leaving Virginia Tech, and have included a charge of brandishing a firearm against a group of people, a civil lawsuit involving a juvenile girl who claimed that she was 15 years old (below the legal age of consent in Virginia) when forced into a sexual situation with Vick, who was 20 years old. , and additional traffic incidents and arrests in January 2007, February 2008, and June 2008 in the Hampton Roads area which resulted in many arrests and seven additional convictions. After the June incident in Norfolk, he was convicted of DUI, misdemeanor eluding police, and driving on the wrong side of the road, and on October 20, 2008, received a 12 month suspended jail sentence, $530 in fines, and his privilege to operate motor vehicles in Virginia was suspended for a year.
