Michael Vick Wife, Brothers, Height, Where Is He Now?

Unarguably one of NFL’s most successful football quarterbacks of all time, Michael Vick will forever be remembered for his robust career with the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles.

Now retired, Vick formerly represented the aforementioned football teams in the American Football tournaments as a quarterback. During his active years, he was famous for his rare athletic speed and natural ability to deliver classic passes on the football pitch.

As a result of his skills, he rose to become one of NFL’s most prolific players with impressive records and titles to show for it. With the help of teammates, he won the 4× Pro Bowl in 2002, 2004, 2005, 2010 and was also honoured with the following awards – Big East Offensive Player of the Year (1999), NFL Comeback Player of the Year (2010), Big East Rookie of the Year (1999), and Bert Bell Award (2010).

The retired footballer launched his footballing career in the year 2000 when he was drafted into the NFL as the number 1 pick. He had his first football stint with the Atlanta Falcons and later represented the team for seven seasons after which he had a run-in with the law and was locked up in a federal prison for 21 months for operating an unauthorized dogfighting ring.

After serving his jail term, Atlanta Falcons released Michael and he was later signed by the Philadelphia Eagles. Starting all over after 21 months away from the field wasn’t really easy for Vick but he managed to get back to form. His stint with the Eagles lasted for just five years, after which he went on to represent New York Jet and Pittsburgh Steelers in the NFL.
