During the 2016 offseason, Michael Vick insisted he believed he had one more year of football left in him.

No teams came calling, however, and the quarterback says he's ready "to move forward" with his life.

"Yeah, I think it's it," Vick said when asked if he's done playing, according to Sports Illustrated's Jonothan Jones. "I'm kind of looking at life from a different perspective now. I've got kids growing that I've got to be there for. I was committed in 2016 to giving it one more shot. I'm very content with my career and what I’ve been able to accomplish.

"I accomplished more than I ever thought I would. Listen, at the end of the day, through all the downs I played, I can say I won a game for every team that I played for, even though I only made three starts in New York and three starts in Pittsburgh. I made a difference, I'm content with my career and I'm ready to move forward in life."

Vick expressed his excitement for the Atlanta Falcons for making the Super Bowl this season - a feat he wasn't able to achieve in his six seasons with the team, losing his lone NFC Championship Game appearance in 2004.

"I'm pumped for them, man" said Vick. "I'm excited as a fan, not only for the franchise but to see some good football."
