Michael Vick is still refusing to believe that his NFL career is over.

The 35-year-old has been without a team since the New York Jets decided not to renew his contract.

He had a relatively poor season with the Jets, playing in ten games, starting three, throwing for 604 yards from 121 attempts, three touchdowns, and two interceptions.

The four-time Pro Bowler released a video on his twitter account with a message saying he's fresh, focused and ready. The video shows him dropping back and throwing a pass.

It's evidently clear that Vick wants teams to know he is actually ready, but teams might not actually care because of his poor stats last year.

His age of 35 doesn't make it exactly appealing for teams either. He will most likely end up on a practice squad or as a third string quarterback. He simply isn't good enough to be a starting quarterback in the NFL anymore.

During his 12 seasons in the NFL, the four-time Pro Bowler passed for 22,093 yards and 131 touchdowns, and rushed for 6,010 rushing yards and 36 TDs.

He is a strong dual-threat quarterback, but there isn't that many teams in the league that need this type of player that don't have one already.

Overall, his time in the NFL could be over.
