Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, who will turn 33 next month, says when it comes to foot speed he can leave any other quarterback in the dust.

Vick said he is still the NFL's fastest quarterback on Friday's edition of the "Dan Patrick Show" and also said he still possesses more open-field speed than Colin KaepernickRobert Griffin III or any other NFL quarterback.

Vick is the NFL's career leader among quarterbacks with 5,551 rushing yards.

"These guys are young and they're fast and they're quick, the thing I do have is a very quick get-up," Vick said. "I really don't feel like there's a quarterback in the league who can beat me in a 40-yard dash. If somebody wants to set something up, I'll be more than glad to accept the challenge. But as of right now I'm going to say me. But Colin Kaepernick is fast and RG3 is fast as well."

Vick beat Eagles teammate LeSean McCoy in the 40-yard dash at practice earlier this month. McCoy said Vick cheated in the race.
