RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Michael Vick apologized to the NFL and his Atlanta Falcons teammates Monday for ``using bad judgment and making bad decisions'' and vowed to redeem himself of charges in a dogfighting case.
Shortly before making his first public statements, the star quarterback pleaded guilty to a federal dogfighting charge and awaited a Dec. 10 sentencing date that likely will send him to prison.
``First I want to apologize for all the things that I've done and that I have allowed to happen,'' Vick said at a news conference following his appearance in U.S. District Court.
``I made a mistake in using bad judgment and making bad decisions,'' he said. ``Dogfighting is a terrible thing.''
He concluded by saying, ``I offer my deepest apologies to everyone. And I will redeem myself. I have to.''
