"I'm very excited," Vick told USA TODAY Sports. "Over the last seven or eight months, I've done a lot of interviews, and I think I've gotten better as I've been put in those situations more often. Things really came together (with Fox) over the last couple months."

Vick "has an incredibly bright future as an analyst," Fox Sports president of production and executive producer John Entz told USA Today. "He has stayed close to the game and has many relationships with today's current coaches and players. We feel he can bring a truly unique perspective that intrigues and engages our viewers." 

Vick played in 143 games over a 13-year career, including 54 with the Eagles from 2009-13. He finished his career with a record of 61-51-1, 22,464 passing yards, 133 passing TDs, 88 interceptions, 6,109 rushing yards and 36 rushing TDs.

He was involved in some controversy earlier this summer when he suggested on FS1 that free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick should cut his hair.
