SJ - May 20, 2022
Former NFL quarterback Michael Vick is coming out of retirement. Sort of. He's not going to be playing in the NFL or anything. He'll be playing in the Fan Controlled Football league.
Vick, who is 41 and last played in the NFL back in 2015, will make his debut according to Reuters on May 28, the last day of the regular season. He hasn't been assigned a team yet.
Vick is the latest high-profile player to sign up with Fan Controlled Football, joining a group that includes Pro Football Hall of Famer Terrell Owens and Johnny Manziel, whose much-hyped NFL career fizzled out after two seasons.
According to the source, Vick agreed to a comeback after seeing the success that good friend Owens has been having since he signed with the league this year.
The FCF league is quickly turning into the NFL's geriatric league. Before too long they'll be sponsored by arthritis medicine or Metamucil.
