Well, it took some time, but one race finally took place at the NovaCare Complex on Thursday.
Vick just beat Shady in a 40 yard race. @mikevick— Colt Anderson (@AndersonColt) May 2, 2013
Vick confirmed the race took place on his Twitter account. Apparently, the younger McCoy got on Vick's case about his age and the four-time Pro Bowl quarterback had enough of the talk.
So today at the field 1 of my teammates called me old & bagged to race me in the 40yd dash. Anybody want to guess which player? #BirdGang— Mike Vick (@MikeVick) May 2, 2013
And, it turns out the race wasn't even close.
Beat him by a few yards too lol #SpeedKILLS— Mike Vick (@MikeVick) May 2, 2013
Of course, McCoy would take to Twitter to dispute the results.
Unfortunately, there does not seem to be any video footage of the race. Workouts were completed for the day and the video staff was back inside the NovaCare Complex editing for coaches. Even though Vick will turn 33 years old later this year, should we really be surprised by the results? Vick ran a 4.33 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine in 2001 prior to being the No. 1 overall selection. At his Pro Day prior to the 2009 NFL Draft, McCoy ran a 4.5.
