An infamous name in NFL has signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a backup to Ben Roethlisberger, springing a big surprise ahead of the regular season.
Michael Vick, former Eagles and Jets QB, will join the Steelers for the 2015/2016 NFL season after spending the summer as a free agent following ten appearances in New York last season.
Vick is infamous off the field as much as he is on it.
Vick spent two years in prison for financing an illegal dog-fighting ring, and interestingly, his first QB in command Roethlisberger is an advocate for dogs, including K-9’s in police. .
According to insiders, the Steelers were limited on other backup QB options apart from Vick.
Vick completed 64 of 121 pass last season, threw three touchdown and two interceptions, and was part of the Jets upset win over the Steelers in November.
