Report: Michael Vick coming out of retirement to join Fan Controlled Football
Former NFL star quarterback Michael Vick is coming out of retirement to play in a Fan Controlled Football game later this month, league sources told TMZ Sports.
Vick is targeting a May 28 return to play in the final week of the regular season. It's unclear which team the four-time Pro Bowl passer would join.
The 41-year-old reportedly became interested in resuming his playing career after Pro Football Hall of Fame receiver Terrell Owens joined the league earlier this year.
Vick retired as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2017. He hasn't played since the 2015 season.
The 2001 No. 1 pick threw for 22,464 yards and 133 touchdowns in the NFL. He holds the league record for career rushing yards by a quarterback (6,109) to go along with 36 rushing scores. The Virginia Tech product also spent time with the Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles, and New York Jets.
Fan Controlled Football is a seven-on-seven league that features eight teams and allows fans to call plays. The league began its second season in April.
