PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Michael Vick’s new book, Finally Free will be available to buy on September 4th. In exerpts released to USA Today, he touches on both his past, and his desire to win a Super Bowl with the Eagles.
On dogfighting, Vick says:
Back when I was involved in those activities, I may have become more dedicated to the deep study of dogs than I was to my Falcons playbook (Vick played in Atlanta from 2001-06). I became better at reading dogs than reading defenses. That’s just so sad to say right now, because I put more time and effort into trying to master that pursuit than my own profession … which was my livelihood … which put food on the table for my family.
On his desire to win a Super Bowl with the Eagles, Vick says:
My story is not finished. I have more to do. I have something that I want give back to everyone that supported me. Here it is: I am committed, focused and determined to win a Super Bowl with the Philadelphia Eagles. This is my promise. It is my drive. I will work like a champion to get there. I want to do it for my family, friends, mentors, coaches, teammates, and fans. I want to do it for Philly.
The book will be released the week before the Eagles season opener in Cleveland on September 9th.
