After all, Michael Vick will not play in the Fan Controlled Football League.
Reuters reported that Vick is expected to retire and join the startup league for a game later this month.
But the electrifying double-threat quarterback, best known for his stints with the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles, wrote on Twitter Sunday that he remains retired.
“I hung her up in 2015 never to come back,” Vick wrote. “I had a great time and achieved so much. I’m saying that to say they’re hanging in there and I won’t be coming out of retirement.”

“I appreciate the opportunity to play, but I’d rather put my boss hat on with the little possessions I have!” he continued.
Fan Controlled Football is a league made up of eight teams that play their games on a 50-yard indoor field in Atlanta, Georgia. Players compete in a 7v7 version of soccer, with fans able to call plays.
Notable players include NFL Hall of Famer Terrell Owens and former NFL and Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.
Vick last played in the NFL with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2015 and officially retired in 2017.

He entered the NFL as the Falcons’ No. 1 overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft and became arguably the most electrifying player in the league from the early to mid-2000s. He threw for 11,505 yards and rushed for 3,859 yards during his six seasons with the Falcons.
However, his career in Atlanta ended abruptly after his involvement in a dogfighting ring. He served almost two years in prison.
He later returned to the NFL with the Eagles in 2009 and was named the league’s Comeback Player of the Year.
