In 2017, he joined Fox Sports as an analyst for Fox NFL Kickoff, the network’s one-hour NFL pregame show that airs on Sundays during the regular season. Vick also helps to produce all studio programming for FS1’s NFL coverage.
He was chosen first overall by the Atlanta Falcons in the 2001 NFL Draft. He made an effect on the game and the league throughout his career with the specific attributes he brought to his position, paving the way for future quarterback generations.
He was chosen to three Pro Bowls with the Falcons (2002, 2004, and 2005) and guided the club to two postseason berths, including the NFC Championship in 2004. He had one of his greatest seasons in Atlanta, setting a new single-season quarterback running record and became the NFL’s first quarterback to carry for 1,000 yards in a single season.
After signing with the Philadelphia Eagles, Michael piled up over 3,000 passing yards and almost 700 running yards with 30 touchdowns in 2010, earning him the NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award and a berth in his fourth Pro Bowl.
After his 13th season including games with the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers, with more than 6,100 yards gained on the ground, 22,000 gained in the air, a lifetime passer rating of 80.5, and 169 career touchdowns, he retired in 2017 as the league’s all-time leading rusher at the quarterback position.
As a redshirt freshman, he led the Virginia Tech Hokies to an undefeated season and the Bowl Title Series national title game. In 1999, he established a rookie record (180.4) and ranks third all-time in passing efficiency. Vick also won the first-ever Archie Griffin Award for most valuable player in college football, as well as an ESPY Award for best college athlete in the country.
