    Michael Vick could owe millions.

    Quarterback Michael Vick could have to shell out some of the millions he is getting for playing for the Eagles.

    The trustee in Vick's bankruptcy case is seeking repayment of at least $2 million that Vick doled out to friends and family members in the months before he was sent to federal prison.

    A complaint filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Newport News says Vick knew his lucrative NFL career was in jeopardy and that he would be facing huge legal bills.

    Yet the complaint claims he continued to give money and gifts to his mother, siblings, fiancée and friends that should have gone to Vick's creditors.

    Vick's bankruptcy attorney, Paul Campsen, did not immediately return a phone message Thursday.

    Vick, who served 20 months for a federal dogfighting conspiracy conviction, is set to make $3.75 million plus incentives for Eagles this season. A judge approved his bankruptcy plan last summer.
