Michael Vick, who last played in 2015 with the Pittsburgh Steelers, is officially retiring this weekend according to TMZ. Vick is making it official by way of an “official retirement party” at Grooves of Houston on the eve of Super Bowl LI. No word on whether or not a party at a Houston nightclub with Gucci Mane is as official as submitting paperwork, but it may be better than how Marshawn Lynch retired. Lynch posted a picture with his football cleats hanging from telephone wire with the caption “I’m done”.
It’s a fitting time for Vick to retire with the Atlanta Falcons playing in the Super Bowl. Vick spent 6 years as the present and future of the Falcons before dog fighting landed him in jail and kept him out of the league for two seasons. He then spent 5 years in Philadelphia and a season with the Jets and Steelers.
It was rumored that Vick wanted to retire as an Atlanta Falcon but it seems that may not happen now.
