Michael Vick has some advice for Colin Kaepernick if he wants another shot in the NFL: Get a haircut.
During an appearance Monday on Fox Sports 1's "Speak for Yourself," Vick said the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback needs to lose his Afro or cornrows for a "clean-cut" style in order to get a job.
The former Falcons and Eagles quarterback said he was speaking from personal experience. Vick was suspended for two seasons beginning in 2007 after pleading guilty to charges in a dog fighting investigation, for which he spent a year and a half in prison.

Kaepernick parted ways with the 49ers in March and hasn't been signed by another team. His decision to kneel during the national anthem last season to protest police shootings of black people became a topic of national conversation.
The two exchanged posts on Twitter about the comment, with Vick saying, "I wish only the best for Colin... Trust and believe what I said was not in malice."
An hour later, Kaepernick tweeted out a photo with an explanation of Stockholm Syndrome.
