Michael Vick Says He’s Not Talked to the Falcons About Returning to Retire with Atlanta

Former Falcons quarterback Michael Vick clarified recent statements regarding his retirement, saying he has not spoken with anyone from the organization about signing a one-day contract to retire as a Falcon, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Vick, hosting his V7 Elite Playmakers Showcase Series football event Sunday, said he is hopeful that it will happen.

“Well, I haven’t talked to anybody about it specifically,” Vick told ESPN. “It’s something that I’ve really been thinking about trying to get done. I was asked the question the other day — is that what I want — and I said, ‘Yeah.’

“So, yeah, I think in due time, it’s something that can potentially happen.”

Vick has maintained a close relationship with Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who invited him to attend the final regular-season game at the Georgia Dome.

“When I spoke to Arthur, we talked about various other things,” Vick said. “Like I said, [retiring as a Falcon] is something that can happen down the road, and I think we both know that. What’s already understood really don’t have to be explained. You let time work everything out in between.”
