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 a 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.
Vick agreed to a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday night.
