Michael Vick won't play for Fan Controlled Football, says he's staying retired

Michael Vick is going to remain retired.

The previous NFL quarterback was going to go back to the football field to play in the Fan Controlled Football league, according to a Reuters report, however the 41-year-old tweeted Sunday that he’s going to remain on the sidelines.

“I hung ’em up in 2015 never to return again,” Vick tweeted Sunday. “Had an amazing time and accomplished so much. I say that to say, they’re going to stay hung up and I will not be coming out of retirement.”

Fan Controlled Football is an eight-team league that plays 7 regular-season video games and its playoffs at a single indoor, 50-yard field in Atlanta. Gameplay is seven-on-seven with fans having the ability to call plays.

Vick starred for the Atlanta Falcons after being picked No. 1 total in the 2001 draft. His profession came to a stop after he pleaded guilty to charges for his participation in a dog-fighting ring. He went back to the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009 after almost 2 years in jail. In 2010, he ended up being the Eagles’ beginning quarterback and made Comeback Player of the Year honors. After 4 years in Philadelphia, Vick bet the New York Jets in 2014 and Pittsburgh Steelers in 2015 prior to formally retiring in 2017.

Had Vick played he would’ve been another significant name to sign up with Fan Controlled Football following Johnny Manziel and Terrell Owens, who each delighted in stints in the second-year league. Vick had actually not been appointed to a group.
