Michael Vick made headlines earlier this week when he said that Colin Kaepernick needed to cut his hair in order to make an NFL roster, and today he joined The Dan Patrick Show to briefly retract and apologize. 

"At the end of the day, what I said, I should have never said. I think it was taken out of context in regards to what I was trying to convey, but I only want to help Kaepernick," Vick said Thursday. "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."

This was a heartfelt apology from Vick, and he went on to elaborate about the hair portion of what he had to say this week.

"Obviously his Afro has nothing to do with him being signed, and I wasn't trying to relay that message," he continued. "It was more so about helping him at the end of the day. In all my interviews, all I have ever tried to do is help him and talk positive."
