Quarterback Michael Vick is not ruling out any options in his upcoming free agency run. With the quarterback job no longer up for grabs in Philadelphia, Michael Vick is looking elsewhere. Although Vick believes that he is good enough to start in the league, he has certainly not ruled out backing up another quarterback and possibly reuniting with his former team, the Atlanta Falcons. When asked by a fan via Twitter about the chances of playing for his former team again, Vick responded, “Maybe later in my career.”
To recap, Atlanta is the place where Vick’s career first started and where most people thought it had ended. Vick began his career in 2001 when he was drafted him as the top pick. He played six seasons with the team, redefining the quarterback position with his multifaceted game that featured a strong pass and run game. After playing only six years with the team, he was sentenced to 23 months in prison. The Atlanta Falcons released Vick and made it clear that he was no longer welcome in the city.
With Vick gone, the Atlanta Falcons drafted Matt Ryan who has since become the face of the franchise. It is highly unlikely that Michael Vick will be able to win the starting quarterback position. Although Vick reuniting with his former team in Atlanta does not seem like an ideal situation, it is still too soon to completely rule it out.
