Michael Vick is still arguably the most dynamic NFL QB we’ve ever seen, but it’s safe to say he has probably overstayed his welcome. Not that he still doesn’t have talent, but it doesn’t seem as if any teams care all that much. He is still a free agent and it’ll be interesting to see if a team gives him some burn.
What made Vick so special, obviously, was his legs. Whenever he stepped on a football field, he was instantly the fastest guy out there. In fact, he ran a 4.25 40-yard dash at the combine.
Michael Vick is now 36 but still feels as if he has something to prove. He has proclaimed that his 36-year-old self can beat 27-year-old Cam Newton in a 40-yard dash. For the record, Cam, a much bigger human being, ran a 4.59 at the combine. You know what: Vick may be right.
“Cam couldn’t beat you in the 40?” the reporter asked, according to The Charlotte Observer.
Replied Vick: “No, Cam can’t beat me in the 40. But his speed is decent. Decent speed. Good enough. Fast enough, I will say that.”
