Fox hires Michael Vick as NFL studio analyst
Michael Vick has found a new job. Fresh off his official retirement with the Atlanta Falcons, the four-time Pro Bowl quarterback announced Friday that he will join Fox Sports as an NFL studio analyst this season.
Through it all, Vick said he began paying attention to broadcasting, so he expects his transition to Fox to be a smooth one.
I think I’m ready for it, Vick told USA Today when asked whether he’s ready for more public scrutiny thanks to his increased visibility. I have already been through that during my career and have had a lot of practice doing interviews. You have to be careful because anything you say can go viral.
He added: I have never criticized guys, but I will be critical. Great players understand that. I’ve seen the reactions from my teammates watching shows in the team lounge when they disagree with something. I’m a credible guy, and I think people will respect that.
He was a little bit overshadowed playing on the same D-line with the more highly touted Bradley Chubb at N.C. State, but Street made the most of his opportunity in the spotlight at the Shrine Game.
Thomas had a good week of practice and got a couple of QB pressures in the game, — I was actually a little disappointed with those plays. He had an opportunity for a couple sacks in those situations but didn’t quite finish them off. He has an ideal NFL body, and while he doesn’t have it all figured out yet, I think he’s going to be a mid-to-late-round pick. A team is going to be very excited to work with him because of his potential to be a disruptive force off the edge.
There wasn’t a lot of buzz about Cabinda during the week of practices, but he made a big impression on me during the game Saturday. He was physical coming downhill to make plays, showing some thump inside. Cabinda was Penn State’s leading tackler in 2017, and it was easy to see why on Saturday. He can help an NFL team on defense and special teams.
