Even the President of the United States has some advice for the budding "dynasty" in Philadelphia.

While at a fundraiser in Oakland, Calif., Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha ran into President Barack Obama and the two chatted up some football, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. 

Obama told Asomugha to relay a message to back to the dynamic quarterback: "Tell Vick to slide."

Vick, a nine-year veteran, has played a full 16-game regular season only once. That was in 2006 in his last season with the Atlanta Falcons. Vick started only 13 games last season.
