Michael Vick not only has the backing of the Eagles front office, quarterback Kevin Kolb is also in his corner.
Kolb and Vick have become friends since the Eagles signed Vick last August. They have been texting each other after the shooting at Vick's birthday party.
Kolb said "I just told him that it was unfortunate what he had to go through. I just said, ‘If there’s anything I can do, whatever is I don’t care, just holler.’ And, of course, he said, ‘I appreciate it.’
“I think people misunderstand Michael a little bit," Kolb said. "They don’t understand how good of a guy he is. But I think [Eagles players and coaches] all see that. I just hate – and this is what he’s upset about – that he got his name drugged back through the mud. For an outsider looking in … they don’t even know what the story is. They’re just seeing something negative with his name and it looks bad.”
“He’s one of my better friends on the team," Kolb said. "I love him.”
