Michael Vick hasn’t played tackle football since 2015 but he has stayed fit and competitive since. Vick played in the American Flag Football League in 2017 as well as a coach, advisor, and consultant for teams in multiple football leagues.

It appears the 41-year-old is getting back on the football field as Reuters reports that Vick is coming out of retirement to play in Fan Controlled Football, an indoor football league where fans decide what plays to run.

It’s unknown which team Vick will play for but he will reportedly be playing a game on May 28, which is the last day of the regular season. Vick reportedly decided to sign up after seeing Terrell Owens having success in the league. Other notable players involved in Fan Controlled Football as players include Owens, Johnny Manziel, and Martavis Bryant.

Fan Controlled Football plays 7-on-7 on a 50 yard indoor field and has a seven week regular season.
