Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick showed he still had plenty of speed Thursday when he beat teammate running back LeSean McCoy in a 40-yard dash at practice.
McCoy, 24, had reportedly been chiding the 32-year-old Vick for weeks, calling him "old man" and challenging him to a race. Vick laughed it off until Thursday, when head coach Chip Kelly allowed the players to race.
Vick outran McCoy and then tweeted about it.
"So today at the field 1 of my teammates called me old," Vick wrote, adding that the teammate begged him to race the 40-yard dash. "Anybody want to guess which player?"
"Beat him by a few yards too lol," he wrote, adding #SpeedKILLS to the tweet.
Other Eagles players tweeted as well.
Tight end Clay Harbor wrote: "The rumors are true... Vick dusted McCoy in the 40yd dash."
McCoy joked on Twitter that Vick "cheated," but also wrote that Vick was "Top 3 fastest man on the TEAM."
