Former NFL quarterback Michael Vick has embarked on the next phase of his football career.
Vick has the opportunity to have a profound impact on the Chiefs if he works with first-round pick Patrick Mahomes, a player who shares several traits with Vick.
“I talked to Patrick in California a couple weeks ago,” Vick told ESPN’s Adam Schefter in June. “I told him he has such a great opportunity just to be behind Alex Smith, who is a very cerebral quarterback and understands the game – short game, long game – how to manage the game. It doesn’t get any better than that.
“Then he has Andy (Reid), the head coach who’s gonna make sure he develops properly. So he’s in a great position. I told him to pick Andy’s brain, never be afraid to ask him a question. Don’t be afraid to go into his office. Be very outspoken, very outgoing, show you can be a leader at a young age and take pride in the scout team. I told him, now while you’re developing, just pick his brain.”
