Dallas Cowboys running backÂ Tashard Choice accomplished one goal Sunday night: He gotÂ Michael Vick’s autograph.
Choice approached Vick after the Eagles’ 30-27 win at Cowboys Stadium and asked him to sign a glove. Philadelphia’s MVP candidate granted the request.
“That’s probably the first time that’s ever happened to me,” Vick said of an opposing player’s request after a game. “But [Choice] is a great guy. It doesn’t surprise me.”
Choice, who rushed for 16 yards on seven carries and had a 17-yard reception in the loss, said he has known Vick for years. They became acquainted when Choice attended Georgia Tech and Vick played for theÂ Atlanta Falcons.
The autograph, according to Choice, was for a young family member who is a big fan of Vick.
“My little nephew says he’s his brother,” Choice said. “My little nephew is 2 years old, so I had to get one for him. I just admire somebody who comes from those circumstances and comes back and proves everybody wrong. I’ve got nothing but respect for him.”
