NEW YORK (AP) -- Michael Vick says he accepts blame for not
stopping an illegal dogfighting ring that he bankrolled. He spoke
in an interview with "60 Minutes" set to air Sunday.
Vick tells CBS Sports anchor James Brown that he feels "some
tremendous hurt behind what happened." He adds that "I should
have took the initiative to stop it all ... I didn't -- I didn't
step up. I wasn't leader."
Brown asks the former Falcons quarterback if he was more
concerned about his playing career or the dogs he hurt, and Vick
replies, "Football don't even matter."
Vick also discusses his time in prison and admits he cried at
night in his cell.
Few teams have expressed any interest in signing Vick. The
Buffalo Bills reiterated Thursday they are not interested in him.

    imagine if every time you had unmarital sex or stole something and the world wanted you to not have a job or to have a 2nd chance at life. we all would be nothing because we have all made mistakes. killing dogs is wrong but mike vick understands that and has paid the price for his actions. lets give this man another chance and forgive him as we all want GOD to do on our judgement day. we have all fallen short! remember that when judging this man.
