Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick has canceled his planned appearance for Wednesday on the Oprah Winfrey show, CNBC.com reported. The interview had been scheduled to air on later this month. No reason was given for the cancellation.
“After careful consideration, I will need to postpone the taping of the Oprah Winfrey interview scheduled for February 22. I admire and respect Oprah and hope to be able to participate in an interview in the future,” Vick said in a statement released late Thursday afternoon.
Vick, 30, was supposed to discuss his history in dog fighting as well as his upbringing and NFL career.
Vick has appeared on Philadelphia area radio and television stations in recent weeks to discuss his future.
The veteran signal caller has made it clear that he wants to return to the team next season. The Eagles used their one-year exclusive franchise tag designation for Vick on Tuesday.
