President Obama called Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie to commend him for giving Michael Vick the chance to play football again. Peter King of Sports Illustrated Tweeted:

Yes, Obama called Eagle owner Jeffrey Lurie to praise the Eagles for giving Vick a chance. Said too many prisoners never get fair 2d chance.

Of course, Vick isn’t your typical former prisoner as Mike Florio notes:

President Obama explained that a level playing field rarely exists for prisoners who have completed their sentences. Vick’s success gives all of them hope.

In our view, Obama’s gesture also provides Vick with the kind of positive reinforcement that will help keep him out of any trouble during the 2011 offseason, once he is left to his own devices.
