Vick promises to 'slide' for Obama

Michael Vick got a kick out of hearing that President Barack Obama - through Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha - pleaded with him "to slide."

After all, Vick's fearlessness can be a liability. The Eagles are a different team when he's injured. Taking fewer chances isn't all bad.

“It was just one of those things that you hear that’s just hard to believe," Vick said. "But at the same time when you let it all soak in, you think to yourself, ‘Man, he’s got a point.’ If he’s saying it, then I’ve got to do it. So the first run of the year, I’m sliding and you’ll know it’s for him.”
