Michael Vick wants to end his career where it began.
The former quarterback is anticipating he’ll sign a one-day contract with the Falcons and officially retire with his first NFL team.
Despite Vick’s hopes, he later clarified there was nothing in the works with the Falcons and that he is simply expressing his wish to retire in Atlanta.
“Well, I haven’t talked to anybody about it specifically,” Vick told ESPN Sunday. “It’s something that I’ve really been thinking about trying to get done. I was asked the question the other day is that what I want, and I said, ‘Yeah.’
“I want to make sure on behalf of the Bucs organization that I apologize [to] the Falcons for whatever that was supposed to be that went out on social media. That’s not what our organization’s about. That was totally unprofessional and not smart on our part, whoever was responsible for that. Heck, we want to be playing in the Super Bowl. We were home sitting on our butt, so we have no room to be making fun of anyone playing in the Super Bowl, whether they won or not.”
Koetter has ties to the Falcons, as he was the team’s offensive coordinator before being hired by Tampa Bay. And it’s understandable why a coach would want to take a more professional approach to this situation. But as far as the Bucs’ social media team, it shouldn’t feel the need to apologize for the tweet.
Social media is supposed to be a fun Cheap International Soccer Jerseys place Cheap Jerseys Bulk where you can tease your rivals. It’s not like the Bucs social media team was mean-spirited with the response. The tweet was just a clever reply to a division rival. No need to make it more than what it was.
