Vick to remain retired, won't play in Fan Controlled Football league
Michael Vick is not returning to football.
The former NFL quarterback tweeted Sunday that he will not unretire after previous reports stated Vick would return to the gridiron for the Fan Controlled Football league.
Vick played 13 seasons in the NFL, spending time with the Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets, and Pittsburgh Steelers. He was among the league's most dynamic passers in his prime due to his speed and dual-threat ability as a rusher.
The 41-year-old's last NFL appearance came during the 2015 season with the Steelers. He started three games, winning two and throwing for two touchdowns.
Fan Controlled Football is an eight-team league that offers seven-on-seven action and involves fans in the playcalling process. The league held its inaugural season in 2021.
