Michael Vick: 'I still have a lot of football left in me'

Wednesday June 17th, 2015

Free-agent quarterback Michael Vick told NFL Total Access that he knows he still has “a lot of football left in me.”

Vick spent the 2014 season with the New York Jets, who decided not to resign him this off-season. The 34-year-old started three games for New York last year and appeared in 10, completing 52.9% of his passes for 604 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.

“I still know I have a lot left in the tank and I still look forward to playing again one day,” said Vick, who turns 35 next week.

A 12-year veteran, Vick also called himself a “proven winner.” The quarterback has been named to the Pro Bowl four times and was the 2010 AP Comeback Player of the Year.

“I think that I've done a lot throughout the course of my career,“ he said. “I've proved that I can win games and play with some consistency and be a leader. I think those are the qualities that you want in a quarterback.”

Over his career, Vick has thrown for more than 22,000 yards while completing 56.1% of his passes.
