Michael Vick will rejoin the team that drafted him before officially calling it a career.
The former star quarterback revealed in a radio appearance Friday that he’s in talks with the Atlanta Falcons about signing a one-day contract in order to retire as a member of the organization.
“Hopefully soon,” Vick said, according to Knox Bardeen of CBS Atlanta.
Vick, selected No. 1 overall in 2001, played the first six years of his career in Atlanta.
His rare ability to shred defenses with either his arm or his legs was on full display in those early Falcons years, earning him a reputation as one of the most electrifying players in league history.
Vick racked up 11,505 yards and 71 touchdowns through the air, adding another 3,859 yards and 21 scores on the ground, across 67 starts during his time with Atlanta.
