Michael Vick Officially Retires
Before the dog fighting scandal Michael Vick had taken the league by storm. After his time 21 month sentence was over Vick was given a chance by Andy Reid in Philly where he had some success, but not nearly as much as he did in Atlanta. His will never be in the Hall of Fame, but he changed the quarterback position forever.
He rushed for 6,109 yards which is still an NFL record for any quarterback. His career passing rating was 80.4 and he was never able to make it to a Super Bowl. However, his rushing paved the way for young mobile Quarterbacks to enter the league. His retirement isn’t that surprising considering he hasn’t played very much over the past few years.
