New York Jets quarterback Michael Vick has been making headlines both on and off the field this off-season.

He is currently the other big Quarterback name which has everybody wondering if he will be his teams starter next season alongside Johnny Manziel of the Cleveland Browns.

After becoming a free agent from the Philadelphia Eagles, Vick joined the Jets while Mark Sanchez went the opposite way in an unrelated deal.

Vick has also claimed to be the pioneer for the new generation of 'mobile' Quarterbacks currently emerging throughout the league.

Its been an eventful off-season for the former number 7 and as teams begin their pre-season workouts, Vick has been the subject of one last bit of off-season fun.

Vick's most trying media commitment

Vick thought he was calling into a radio show to discuss the upcoming NFL season, but what he got, couldn't have been anything more opposite.

Vick was confronted with some 'callers' who had some very unorthodox questions for him which covered a variety of topics.

Some topics were just funny, like the 'caller' who asked if Vick sent his cousin a signed jersey - his cousin who he met in prison.

Another crossed some questionable lines asking if the Jets putting Vick and Geno Smith in competition was racist by making a black Quarterback go against a black Quarterback?

That caller went out on a high though to then ask about poodle fighting rings and if Vick knew where he could find one?

Vick nearly hung up mid way through the calls but was convinced to stay on long enough to learn the truth that he was was being pranked.

The last few seconds allowed the man to explain that he was in fact Nephew Tommy from the Steve Harvey morning show.

The whole thing was a prank which was set up by one of Vick's former team-mates, Offensive Lineman Jason Peters of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Vick can now return to the Jets pre-season preparations as they hope to live up to the hype that a very successful off-season recruiting drive has brought to them.
