Earlier this year, in May, reports claimed that Michael Vick was expected to join the startup league Fan Controlled Football. It also sparked rumors that the former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback may return to the NFL.

However, Vick quickly squished any potential rumors of his return to football. On Twitter, the four-time Pro Bowler insisted that his cleats will 'remain hung up'.

I hung ‘em up in 2015 never to return again. Had an amazing time and accomplished so much. I say that to say, they’re going to stay hung up and I will not be coming out of retirement. (1/2)
