DATE OF BIRTH: June 26, 1980

COLLEGE: Virginia Tech

POSITION: Quarterback

Thirteen-season NFL veteran and four-time Pro Bowler Michael Vick entered the NFL as the first overall pick in 2001 with the Atlanta Falcons. In just five years with the Falcons, Vick reached three Pro Bowls (2002, 2004 and 2005) and led the team to two playoff appearances, including the NFC Championship in 2004. During his final season in Atlanta, Vick put on one of his best performances, breaking the single-season rushing record for a quarterback and becoming the first quarterback in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards in a season.
Vick went on to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles, and in 2010 he gathered over 3,000 yards passing, nearing 700 yards rushing, all with a total of 30 touchdowns, earning the NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award and selection to his fourth Pro Bowl.
After stints with the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers, Vick retired from the NFL in 2017 as the league’s all-time quarterback rushing leader with more than 6,100 yards on the ground, 22,000 yards in the air, and a career passer rating of 80.5 with 169 career touchdowns. Vick is widely regarded for transforming the quarterback position and paving the way for future dual-threat quarterbacks league wide.
After retiring, Vick began a career as a media personality, joining FOX Sports where he is an analyst for FOX NFL KICKOFF, and is also featured across FS1’s NFL coverage.
Vick is a native of Newport News, Virginia. Married to wife Kijafa, he is a proud father to four children.
