Despite the fact that Michael Vick believes he still has a lot to give in the NFL, his time may be up in the league.
The man once known as "The Human Highlight Reel" posted a cryptic message on Twitter this week, one that many believe is an unofficial retirement announcement. Vick caused a stir on social media by posting a picture of himself in a Philadelphia Eagles' jersey, in mid-salute.
Vick is currently a free agent, an although he has stated that he would like to continue his career for one more season, there has not been any takers for his services as of yet. If he is indeed contemplating retirement, it would mark the end of one of the most exciting and controversial careers ever.
After a remarkable career at Virginia Tech, leading the Hokies to the 1999 BCS National Championship Game as a redshirt freshman, Vick was an instant sensation with the Atlanta Falcons, defeating Green Bay in the 2002 playoffs and leading the Falcons to the NFC Championship Game in 2004.
However, his career took a turn after so much early success. After a couple of mediocre seasons, Vick was convicted in 2007 and served a two-year prison sentence for his role in a dog fighting ring.
In 2009, Vick returned to the NFL, and in 2010, was named the league's Comeback Player of the Year as he lead Philadelphia to a division championship. He also began campaigning for animal rights in recent years, labelling himself as a changed man.
Vick then spent one uneventful season with the New York Jets before going went 2-1 as a starter in 2015, as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, in relief of starter Ben Roethlisberger.
Now it appears Vick is waiting for yet another chance in his polarizing career, although at this point, another chance may never come.
