Vick officially announced his retirement from the NFL, ESPN reports.
Now 36 years old, Vick was unable to find a team to play for in 2016 despite his stated hopes of playing again. Once the No. 1 overall selection in the 2001 Draft, he will be remembered on the football field for the strong arm and electrifying running ability that led the Atlanta Falcons to two playoff appearances and one NFC championship game. He later joined the Eagles for the 2009-2013 seasons before spending a year with each of the Jets and Steelers, finishing his career with 22,464 passing yards, 133 passing touchdowns and 6,109 rushing yards -- an all-time quarterback record.
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.
Vick is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns.
With Vick inactive Sunday, NFL.com indicates that Ben Roethlisberger -- who is dealing with a foot issue -- is in line to back up Landry Jones on Sunday.
Vick (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
This is not really big news since Ben Roethlisberger is back in action, but it means that Landry Jones will act as the backup.
Vick (hamstring) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Vick appears to have overcome his recent hamstring injury, but is pegged as a backup quarterback now that Ben Roethlisberger has returned to action.
Vick (hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday.
Vick could be available for Sunday's game against the Raiders, but with starter Ben Roethlisberger back in action, Vick once again slots in as a backup for the Steelers.
Vick (hamstring) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Vick missed last weekend's game and was limited in practice this week due to his hamstring injury, but with starter Ben Roethlisberger (knee) expected to return this weekend, Vick's fantasy value is highly restricted anyway.
Vick (hamstring) did not practice Thursday.
That's a step back from Thursday's limited participation, but with Ben Roethlisberger on track to suit up this week, Vick's Week 8 status is of limited fantasy import.
Vick (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday.
While that is a step in the right direction for Vick, at this stage, starter Ben Roethlisberger appears on track to return to action this week, and in such a scenario Vick would be restricted to backup duty Sunday against the Bengals in the event that he is able too suit up.
Steelers backup quarterback Mike Vick (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday game against the Chiefs.
With Vick unavailable, Landry Jones is thus in line to receive his first career NFL start unless Ben Roethlisberger (officially listed as questionable) returns,
Steelers backup quarterback Mike Vick suffered a small hamstring tear Sunday against Arizona and is "at least a week away" from returning, NFL.com reports.
His poor play Sunday was compounded by injury during the second half, forcing him out for the remainder of the game. With Landry Jones leading a comeback victory in his absence, Vick was unlikely to receive another start while Ben Roethlisberger (knee) remains sidelined.
VickMichael Vick completed 3-of-8 passes for six yards, adding 47 yards rushing on five carries in the Steelers' 25-13 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.
Vick (hamstring) struggled in the first half against Arizona, before giving way to Landry Jones to start the third quarter. Since taking over for an injured Ben Roethlisberger (knee), Vick has completed 40-of-66 passes for 371 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. If Big Ben is unable to play in Week 7, it remains to be seen if Vick or Jones will make the start against Kansas City.
Steelers backup quarterback Michael Vick completed 5 of 6 passes for 38 yards after coming on for Ben Roethlisberger in the third quarter Sunday in St. Louis.
Roethlisberger had to be carted off the field with a knee injury and there is a big concern that he could miss a number of weeks. If that's the case, Vick will be the starter for at least Week 4, which unfortunately for the Steelers will come Thursday against Baltimore.
Vick still has plenty of weapons around him, namely receiver Antonio Brown and running back Le'Veon Bell, and he could get wideout Martavis Bryant back in Week 5, making him a decent Fantasy option in most formats.
Free agent quarterback Michael Vick is confident that he can still start in the NFL, if he gets an opportunity.
At a golf tournament in Washington, Vick replied, "Absolutely, yeah I do (think I can start)," per NFL.com.
"I think when you're a veteran, you can do it," he said. "You understand everything that goes on throughout the course of an NFL season, throughout the course of a preseason. So you know how to pace yourself. You've just got to stay training. You've just got to work out. You have to make sure when you go in that you're in tip-top shape and not lagging, because if you do, it's going to show."
Vick was a backup for the Jets last season.
Veteran quarterback Michael Vick is a man without a team. He's 34 years old. And the last game he played in the NFL caused him to be benched.
Vick hit rock-bottom with a 7-for-19 effort for the Jets in a loss to Buffalo last November. But he's working to prove that he'd be a worthy addition.
"I still feel like I can help a football team win a couple of games," he told the Virginian-Pilot.
Vick, who has been working out at a facility owned by former Dolphins standout receiver Chris Chambers, questioned his drive after last season. He said he went "back to the drawing board" and sought to gain five pounds while maintaining his speed and quickness against linemen and linebackers who have gained a step on him over the years.
"At the end of the day, football is what I love to do," he said. "When you have passion for it, you have to sacrifice and put the hard work in. ... Sometimes, it takes certain things to wake you up and (last year) was certainly a wake-up call for me."
The Eagles rejected a trade that would have sent wide receiver Josh Gordon from Cleveland to Philadelphia in exchange for quarterback Nick Foles, according to ESPN.
The Browns allegedly made the offer prior to the 2013 season. At the time, Gordon was set to face a two-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Foles was recently named the team's backup behind Michael Vick.
Chip Kelly, who was in his first year as the Eagles' head coach, reportedly had some concerns about Gordon's suspension, but was also high on Foles.
While both players produced in 2013, Gordon has continued to get himself in trouble with the league. Foles had a bit of a down year in 2014, but played in just eight games after a collarbone injury.
Foles is expected to head into next season as Philadelphia's starter. Gordon has been suspended for the entire season after testing positive for alcohol in a recent drug test.
The Jets are not expected to bring back free agent quarterback Michael Vick in 2015, a league source told Metro New York.
Vick is a free agent in 2015, and the Jets are willing to let him test the market. At this point, a return to New York will depend on what the Jets do in free agency and in the draft. The 34-year-old veteran passed for 604 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in 10 appearances. He recently told reporters he believes he has a "good, solid two years" left in his career.
When Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston does make it to the NFL, he will already have the support of Jets quarterback Michael Vick.
Despite Winston’s troubles away from the field, Vick believes Winston will be the league’s next big star.
"I think he's the future of the NFL," Vick said, per ESPN.
While some NFL teams are concerned about Winston’s character, Vick believes Winston's talent on the field will overshadow any mistakes he makes off it.
"But I do know one thing: He may make some poor decisions, but he gets on that football field and he plays his ass off," Vick said. "Yeah, he can mature. He'll mature. I see him maturing as time goes on. Like, this year hasn't been as bad of a year as the first year was for Jameis. I think the kid will continue to improve."
Jets quarterback Michael Vick is on the brink of paying off nearly $18 million owed to creditors, ESPN has reported.
Vick filed for bankruptcy protection in July 2008. He served a year-and-a-half in prison for taking part in a dogfighting ring. It took him nearly seven years to pay off the debt.
