Michael Vick’s NFL career is on life support, but he’s hoping the wake up call he received in New York last year will push through the adversity of not having any suitors.
“Sometimes, it takes certain things to wake you up and [last year] was certainly a wake-up call for me,” Vick told Ed Miller of the Virginian-Pilot.
Vick’s admission that he wasn’t prepared to play against the Chargers last season, could be the reason he’s not on a roster weeks before the start of training camp.
With that being said, Vick says “he can still help a team win a few ballgames.”
“I still feel like I can help a football team win a couple of games,” he said. “I see my role as being a mentor first and foremost, a confident quarterback who can come off the bench if necessary in whatever the situation may be and win football games.
“Whether it’s two or three games a year or four or five, I feel like I can put myself in that situation where I can, . . . use the weapons around me, play some smart football.”
Michael Vick has been in the NFL too long for wake-up calls at this point.
