Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick joined Piers Morgan tonight during his primetime show Piers Morgan Tonight for an interview about his downfall in 2007.

According to Piers Morgan, in his new book “Michael Vick: Finally Free, An Autobiography,” Vick expresses his love of dogs in spite of his fascination with dog fighting and the competition associated with it. Vick was banned from owning a dog for three years but this month the ban expires.

During the interview, Morgan asks Vick if he will get a new dog and Vick replies that he would for his children. “I can’t take that dream away from them,” Vick explains. ”That’s selfish on my behalf. You know, so, gotta find a way to make it right and, you know, I put everything in God’s hands to make it right.”

When Morgan asks Vick what kind of dog he would adopt, Vick replies “I would let them [his children] pick it out. Certainly wouldn’t be a pit bull.”
