Michael Vick was once considered the fastest man in the NFL. Highlight reels showed him running past defenders with lightning quickness when he was earlier in his career with Atlanta.
Now, at 32, many think Michael Vick has lost a step, including his teammate running back LeSean McCoy. The young running back had been calling out Vick in offseason workouts and egging him on with names like “old man.”
Finally Vick had enough and agreed to race McCoy. Eagles safety Colt Anderson tweeted out that Vick beat McCoy in the race. And according to Rotoworld he won by a solid 5 yards.
According to Pro Football Talk, Michael Vick asked new head coach Chip Kelly if it were ok for him to accept the challenge. They also said their teammates went nuts. If I were a member of the Eagles, I probably would’ve gone nuts too.
There is nothing better than someone egging on a wise veteran only to get taken to school. It reminds me of Kyrie Irving challenging Kobe Bryant ahead of the Olympics when Team USA was training. That bet was for $50,000 but according to Kobe Bryant it never happened because Kyrie said he needed to ‘get his money up’ first.
Vick just beat Shady in a 40 yard race. @mikevick
