Tashard Choice Snags Michael Vick Autograph On Air

Tashard Choice found out the hard way that the cameras are always rolling.

After his Dallas Cowboys lost 30-27 to the Philadelphia Eagles, the NBC cameras caught Choice asking Michael Vick for an autograph.

Players asking other players for autograph isn’t out of the ordinary. Getting caught on national television is though.

“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.”

Before Dallas runs Choice out of town, the backup running back claims the autograph was for a young family member.

“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.”
