Michael Vick has officially retired from the NFL at the age of 36.
Vick didn't play during the 2016 season.
"In this moment right now, I'm willing to say yeah, I'm officially retired," Vick said. "I think it's time. I think going through the 2016 season without playing and being able to be a spectator and watch the game and enjoy it from afar and root for a lot of the players and coaches I once played for, I think kind of summed it all up for me.
"So now I think I'm officially ready, I'm ready to move on to different things in my life and different facets of my life."
Vick spent six seasons in Atlanta, wowing the NFL with his running ability and strong arm and leading the Falcons to two playoff appearances and one trip to the NFC Championship Game (2004).
After serving a 21-month federal prison sentence for running a dogfighting ring, Vick returned to the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Vick played sparingly in 2009 but started 35 games for Philly over the next three seasons, making the Pro Bowl in 2010.
