The NFL star, who spent 19 months in prison for animal cruelty and promoting dogfighting in 2007, has been invited to star in the magazine in return for a $1 million donation to the animal rights group PETA.
A Playgirl spokesperson told Life & Style: "I sent the request to Michael Vick on Wednesday. But we haven't heard back yet. I figured he paid back society for dogfighting, but what about the animals?
"This way he could donate a large sum to PETA and all he'd have to do is pose for the magazine! It's kind of a win-win situation."
