BETHLEHEM, Pa. - When President Obama told Nnamdi Asomugha to "tell [Michael] Vick to slide" at an event Monday, the message got back to the Eagles quarterback.
At first, Vick was "stunned" - in a good way - that Obama thought of him.
After further consideration, Vick thought: "Man, he's got a point."
Finally, Vick came to a resolution: He'll listen to the president.
"The first run of the year, I'm sliding, and you'll know it's for him," Vick told reporters after Thursday's practice.
Vick viewed Obama's interest in him as an indication that he's being recognized. He has never met Obama, but he hopes to one day. And in case Asomugha sees Obama soon, Vick has a message to relay to the president.
