President Obama Has a Message for Mike Vick

Eagles QB Mike Vick

When Philadelphia Eagles corner Nnamdi Asomugha had the opportunity to speak for President Barack Obama earlier this week, the conversation turned to football.  Obama had a message that he wanted the corner to deliver to one of his teammates.

“Tell Vick to slide” are the words that Obama had for quarterback Mike Vick.

And Eagles fans everywhere rose up in applause.

The message was heard loud and clear by Vick, who took to Twitter after hearing the story:


Vick has only played one full 16-game season in the NFL, as his scrambles to make plays make him vulnerable to injury. So will Vick finally do it? No less than the leader of the free world will be watching.
