Phone LL Cool J. We’re calling this a comeback.
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was named The Associated Press NFL Comeback Player of the Year last Saturday night and accepted the award in a ceremony in Dallas.
“I thank my coaches and my teammates,” Vick said.
Vick received 291/2 of the 50 votes, edging out Seahawks receiver Mike Williams (eight votes).
Vick put up career-high numbers in completion percentage (62.6), passing yards (3,018) and passer rating (100.3).
“I’ve come a long way,” Vick said. “I don’t want to live in the past. I always want to move forward. Everything happens for a reason.”
