Vick, 37, has not played in the league since 2015 and told ESPN’s Josina Anderson in February that he is retired. The Falcons made Vick the No. 1 pick in the 2001 draft. His tenure in Atlanta infamously ended when he was found guilty of dogfighting in 2007 and served 23 months in prison. The Falcons officially released him in 2009. After his reinstatement to the NFL, Vick played five seasons for the Philadelphia Eagles, then one season each for the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers.
