Vick, who remains unsigned, hopes to play this coming season, the Charlotte Observer reports. While teams aren't exactly lining up to sign the 36-year-old QB at this stage, Vick still hopes to catch on somewhere this season, ideally with a contender. "I wouldn't say that I would go to any of the 32 teams," said Vick, who attempted 66 passes in five games for the Steelers in 2015. "At this point in my career I would love to play for a contender. If anything, you've just got to be willing to make a contribution."
Vick played four games in relief of an injured Ben Roethlisberger this season, completing 40 of 66 passes for 371 yards, while throwing two touchdowns and one interception. He also ran for 99 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. Pittsburgh won all but one game, an overtime loss to Baltimore, with Vick at quarterback before a hamstring tear ended his season. Should Vick, an unrestricted free agent who turns 36 before next season, return in 2016, he will compete with Landry Jones, who turns 27, for the backup job.
