LOOK: If the NFL doesn't call, Michael Vick is ready to join the Warriors

Back in April, Michael Vick talked about playing one more NFL season.

"I've got one more dedicated season in my blood, if somebody needs me to come in," he told the DailyPress.com's David Teel.

The first overall pick in 2001 NFL Draft turned 36 last month, and as it stands, he remains an NFL free agent. But if the football thing doesn't workout in the coming weeks and months, Vick has a backup plan.

The obvious inspiration is Kevin Durant, but perhaps Vick was instead guided by Broncos pass rush Von Miller, who made a similar Dubs-inspired joke earlier in the week.

Ayye, it looks good to me 🏀🐸☕️

Either way, as NFL.com's Tyler Dragon reminds us, Vick's basketball-playing days are firmly in the rearview mirror. Here he is last year in a celebrity hoops game getting schooled by former teammate LeSean McCoy.

Meanwhile, Vick may have also taken his last NFL snap. Barring the unforeseen, the Steelers won't re-sign him. And if none of the other 31 teams come calling, Vick sounds like he's OK with that too.

"I've got my health, I've got my kids, I've got my family," he said this spring. "The game has done so much for me in terms of relationships, opportunities to take care of myself and my family. I'm just thankful. I give all the credit to God."
