According to Darren Rovell of ESPN.com, Michael Vick will participate in a professional flag football game on June 27, along with recently-retired running back Justin Forsett.
“I just thought to myself, ‘what would this look like if great athletes played this?’” American Flag Football League founder Jeff Lewis said, via Rovell. “There’s certainly a huge pool to take guys from. Every single year, NFL teams cut 800 guys. We need less than 100 players to field eight teams.”
“We’ll try to find a 60-year-old guy with a beer gut who can stand in and be a quarterback of one of our teams,” Lewis said. While that sounds intriguing, Lewis will need to decide whether he wants it to be a competitive football league or a reality-style sideshow.
I think it could be a hit guys…What do you think?
