Michael Vick says he would only sign with contender
Michael Vick is hoping to play at least one more season in the NFL, but that does not mean he is desperate enough to take any offer that comes along.
While speaking to reporters at the HoopTee Celebrity Golf Classic in Charlotte earlier this week, Vick said he is not giving up hope despite still being a free agent with training camp about to begin. He also said he would not just sign with any team that is interested.
“I’m going to continue to stay optimistic about my 2016 season and try to enjoy it,” Vick said, via Jonathan Jones of The Charlotte Observer. “I wouldn’t say that I would go to any of the 32 teams. At this point in my career I would love to play for a contender. If anything, you’ve just got to be willing to make a contribution. In the NFL, that’s what it’s all about.”
Vick is 36 and has not looked impressive in limited duty over the past few seasons. He knows he doesn’t have a chance to win a starting job, so it makes sense that he would want to be a backup on a contender. His previous remarks made it seem like he is not going to be aggressive in pursuing a job opportunity, and it sounds like that still holds true.
