In the November issue of Uptown Magazine, NFL player Michael Vick talks about returning to the game and his road to redemption.

On his multi-million dollar contact with the Eagles, Vick explains:

“I am determined to become a better student of the game and I knew I had to work at it,” says Vick. “I was young when I was in Atlanta. I’m older now. I’ve been through a lot and I think I’ve matured. I had some good years there, but I’m just so thankful to be in Philadelphia right now. I could not have landed in a better city. This is my home. This is where I want to be, and I take this opportunity seriously.”

Now responsible for leading another team to the final, the Superbowl contender explains why he must be careful on how he moves on and off the field.

“I play the game the way I know how to play it,” Vick tells UPTOWN, after the magazine spent months trying to negotiate an interview. He’s understandably cautious about whom he talks to and what he says.

“You have to take precautions, but this is what I love to do. I want to be there for my team and do what I have to do as a quarterback to be successful.”
