After saying free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick remains unemployed because of his Afro, Michael Vick has apologized, admitting that he “should’ve used a better choice of words.”
Vick said on the “Dan Patrick Show” Thursday that he believes Kaepernick’s play, not his national anthem protest, is the reason he’s been unable to sign with an NFL team.
“What I said, I should have never said,” Vick said. “I think it was taken out of context in regards to what I was trying to convey, but I only want to help Colin Kaepernick. I’m not a general manager, I’m not the guy who makes the decisions on getting him signed, and I’m truly sorry for what I said. I think I should have used a better choice of words.”
Vick specifically apologizes for suggesting Kaepernick get a haircut, saying he doesn’t think that has any bearing on his situation.
“His Afro has nothing to do with him being signed and I wasn’t trying to relay that message. It was more about helping him at the end of the day,” Vick said.
