Michael Vick is speaking out about the dogfighting that nearly ruined his NFL career while promoting his new book.

He says the book is his way of setting the record straight and answering questions for all the opinions he has heard.

Police uncovered the illegal dogfighting ring at his Surry County home back in 2007.

Vick says he saw his first dogfight when he was eight-years-old and was naïve to get involved.

On the Today show, Vick talked about the day he talked to his son about going to jail.
