Michael Vick was never able to win a Super Bowl in his decorated career, but he hopes to change that in retirement.
The former Falcons quarterback was on Adam Schefter’s “Know Them From Adam” podcast and said he hopes to become a coach one day. The 36-year-old wants to help develop fellow players at his position and hopefully help lead them to the title that eluded him.
“I would love to coach in the National Football League one day. At some point, I’d definitely love to help work with young quarterbacks and develop them and still compete, you know, with the team and with the coaches.

“F— you, Andy. … Benoit is clearly an idiot, but what’s dismaying here is that his idiocy is in lockstep with the rest of the NFL,” Magary wrote.
The Bengals drafted Joe Mixon. They just signed him to his rookie NFL contract. Although the backlash over the controversial rookie running back has just begun, there’s only way for the Bengals to tone it down: Don’t shy away from it.
So far, thanks to TMZ, Mixon’s most public appearance of his Cheap Softball Jerseys For Girls first offseason in Cincinnati has been at a Future concert with current teammate Cheap Stitched Jerseys Adam Jones.
