Vick hears the boos in his return to Atlanta
ATLANTA -- Michael Vick has been welcomed with boos in his return to Atlanta.
There were more boos than cheers when Vick made his first appearance on the Eagles' opening drive. He ran for 3 yards after taking the snap and then heard more boos when he returned to the sideline.
He returned to more boos two plays later and ran for 4 yards.
Vick was at the front of the pack of Eagles players as the team ran onto the field, and he was selected to serve as a team captain.
Vick was greeted with a hug from his former Falcons center, Todd McClure, before the coin toss. Atlanta receiver Roddy White also embraced Vick before the game.
There was a large turnout of fans wearing Vick's No. 7 jerseys -- both Falcons and Eagles. He received a warm greeting from his former teammates when captains met on the field for the pregame coin toss.
