Michael Vick, one of the most exciting quarterbacks in recent NFL history, is making his return…to fan-controlled football. Vick, 41, would make his debut in the final week of the season, which is May 28. Vick, however, doesn’t have a team yet.
Vick hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2015. He started 3 games for the Pittsburgh Steelers that year, throwing 2 touchdowns to 1 interception. Early in his career, Vick played with the Atlanta Falcons. He finished in the top 5 of MVPs by voting twice with the club.
Vick was later charged in a dogfighting investigation ahead of the 2007 NFL season. He was suspended for two years and spent 21 months in prison.
After being released, Vick signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. He played five years with the team, making the Pro Bowl in 2010. He spent one season with the New York Jets in 2014 before joining Pittsburgh for the 2015 season.
What is Fan Controlled Football League?
As its name suggests, the Fan Controlled Football League is a football league… controlled by the fans. The games are streamed on Twitch, where fans can vote on the games. The games featured 7v7 action, with the field measuring just 50 yards.
Vick won’t be the only big name in CWF. Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel and Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens — who was recently traded — also play in the CLF.
The league also has quite a large cryptocurrency and NFT slope. The cryptocurrency market is in a rough patch right now, so Vick could be the last fan-controlled football league grab to grab headlines before things fall apart.
