Sure, he may still be learning how to carry a football and thought to be getting slow with his age, but Michael Vick seemed nothing but confident in his speed during an interview with the Dan Patrick Show on Friday morning.
When asked which quarterback could beat him in a 40-yard dash, he said despite his age (32), he didn't see anyone beating him.
"These guys are young, and they're fast, and they're quick," he said of the league's other QBs. "The thing I do have is a very quick get-off, my burst. I really don't feel like there's a quarterback in the league that can beat me in the 40-yard dash. If somebody wants to set something up, I'll be more than glad to accept the challenge. But, as of right now, I'm going to say me. But Colin Kaepernick is fast, and RG3 is fast as well."
Surprised? It's possible. He said earlier in the interview, he has been sticking with his workout regimen and could run a 40 in "4.4, maybe a high 4.4." Kelly's influence, he said, had helped him gain six pounds of muscle and also had him seeing muscles in his legs he hadn't seen in years.
