Former NFL quarterback Michael Vick clarified to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com on Sunday that he has not yet spoken to the Atlanta Falcons organization about his desire to sign a one-day contract and retire with the team.

On Friday, he revealed his desire to retire with the team during an interview with Jon Chuckery of CBS Atlanta (h/t Knox Bardeen of CBS Atlanta).

"Hopefully soon," Vick said.

Vick, 36, spent his first six seasons with the Falcons and registered 11,505 passing yards, 3,859 rushing yards and 92 total touchdowns. His 2006 season was superb, as he threw for 2,474 yards and 20 touchdowns and rushed for 1,039 yards, making him the only quarterback in NFL history to eclipse 1,000 rushing yards.

He led the Falcons to the postseason in the 2002 and 2004 seasons, reached the NFC title game in 2004 and made three Pro Bowls with the team.

His time in Atlanta ended in 2007, however, after he was convicted of running a dogfighting ring that ended with him spending 21 months in prison. In the 2008 NFL draft, the Falcons selected Matt Ryan with the No. 3 overall selection, officially moving on from Vick.
