Michael Vick hasn't been associated with the Falcons since he was taken to jail many years ago during the peak of his Atlanta run.

So it was a little odd on Saturday seeing Vick's Twitter avatar changed to him in a Falcons uni. (Yes it is a slow news day, thanks for asking.)

This could be related to Vick's request for Photoshop help perhaps?

Or maybe it's him being hopeful. It's not, as we're told, a case of him being close to an Atlanta reunion.

League sources tell CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora that Vick isn't close to any deal with any team just yet so don't expect to see him in an actual Falcons uniform any time soon.
