Former Eagles quarterback Michael Vick had some surprising advice for Colin Kaepernick: Get a haircut.
Appearing on Fox Sports 1’s Speak For Yourself, Vick told host Jason Whitlock and guest host (and new Fox Sports hire) Mark Schlereth that he didn’t listen to suggestions to change his own image until very late in his career, when he attempted a comeback after spending 18 months in prison for financing and running a dog fighting ring.
“Listen, I’m not up here to try to be politically correct. Even if he puts cornrows in there. I don’t think he should represent himself in that way in terms of just the hairstyle,” Vick said. “Just go clean-cut. You know, why not? You’re already dealing with a lot of controversy surrounding this issue. The most important thing that he needs to do is just try to be presentable.”
After opting out of his contract with the 49ers, Kaepernick has yet to land with any NFL team. Aside from a single meeting with the Seahawks, the young quarterback has drawn very little interest from general managers around the league. Many analysts say Kaepernick’s continued unemployment is largely due to his decision to kneel in protest during the national anthem before games last season.
