Michael Vick Apologizes for Colin Kaepernick Hair Comments
(SI.com) Michael Vick backtracked on the comments he made about Colin Kaepernick’s hair earlier this week on Fox Sports 1.
The former Falcons and Eagles quarterback was highly scrutinized for his initial stance (“The thing that he needs to do is just try to be presentable,”) as part of the conversation about why the 29-year-old Kaepernick remains a free agent. Vick emphasized at the time that he felt Kaepernick’s play was the primary reason he was unsigned, and not his decision to kneel in protest of racial injustice during the national anthem before games.
Vick released a statement Monday to clarify, and went a step further to clear the air with his comments Thursday.
