Vick, Dungy visit Tampa area prison

So what is Michael Vick doing during the lockout? Heading to prison – sort of. With Tony Dungy, the Eagles quarterback visited about 1,000 soon-to-be-released inmates at Avon Park (Fla.) Correctional Institution.

"It was very humbling and at the same time, a bit overwhelming. You really didn't know what to expect," Vick told the Associated Press via Pro Football Talk. "Hopefully I can be an example to somebody. The thing that I was trying to get across is that we all can be instruments of change. That's something that I've been proactive about since I stepped out of prison and I'm enjoying every minute of it."

Dungy said, “I told Michael when we met in Leavenworth is that he’d be able to do some things, say some things and reach some people that no one else can. Other people can go in and say ‘Here is what you should do.’  It may be coming from somebody who they really respect, but not somebody who really knows what they’ve been through.

“When they see Mike, they say, ‘Here’s somebody that lived in my shoes for two years.’”
