After he made headlines for all the wrong reasons recently while speaking about Colin Kaepernick, Vick will probably try to keep a lower profile as he learns about coaching at the NFL level. Studying under Reid, who has been a head coach since 1999 and coached in some capacity for decades, should be a great opportunity for the former QB.
