Michael Vick will retire.

The former NFL quarterback was due to return to the football field to play in the Fan Controlled Football League, according to a Reuters report, but the 41-year-old tweeted on Sunday that he would stay on the sidelines.

“I put them on in 2015 to never return again,” Vick said tweeted Sunday. “Had a great time and achieved so much. I say this to say that they will be stuck and I will not get out of retirement.”

Fan Controlled Football is an 8-team league that plays seven regular season games and its playoffs on a single indoor 50-yard court in Atlanta. The gameplay is seven to seven, where fans can call for plays.

Vick starred for the Atlanta Falcons after being selected as No. 1 overall in the 2001 draft. His career came to a standstill after he pleaded guilty to charges of his involvement in a dogfight ring. He returned to the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009 after nearly two years in prison. In 2010, he became the Eagles’ starting quarterback and received the award as Comeback Player of the Year. After four years in Philadelphia, Vick played for the New York Jets in 2014 and the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2015 before officially retiring in 2017.

Had Vick played, he would have been another notable name to join Fan Controlled Football after Johnny Manziel and Terrell Owens, who each enjoyed a stay in the Second Division. Vick had not been assigned to a team.
