Two days after it was announced that Michael Vick would appear on Oprah, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback canceled on Wednesday.

“Michael Vick was scheduled to be a guest on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ for an episode airing next Thursday, February 24,” said a spokesperson from Harpo Productions. “Mr. Vick’s representatives called last night to cancel his appearance for personal reasons.”

Vick released a statement saying, “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.”

You made the right choice, Mike. Trust me.
