Michael Vick: I'm faster than RG3, Colin Kaepernick

Michael Vick is on the wrong side of 30 in a league flooded with young, lightning-quick quarterbacks, but the Philadelphia Eagles veteran still believes he's the fastest signal-caller around.

In a Friday morning chat with "The Dan Patrick Show," Vick said he could whip Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick -- or anyone else -- in a footrace.

Breer: Gunning the Eagles' engine

What has new coach Chip Kelly brought to Eagles practices? Speed, speed and more speed, Albert Breer says. **More ...**

"These guys are young and they're fast and they're quick, the thing I do have is a very quick get-up," Vick said. "I really don't feel like there's a quarterback in the league that can beat me in a 40-yard dash.

"If somebody wants to set something up, I'll be more than glad to accept the challenge. But as of right now, I'm going to say me. But Colin Kaepernick is fast, and RG3 is fast as well."

Vick made waves this offseason when he beat LeSean McCoy in a 40-yard dash. The Eagles running back insists Vick cheated, but the quarterback laughed that off.

No passer has topped Vick's 5,551 career yards on the ground, and he told Patrick he still runs a "4.4 -- maybe a high 4.4 (40-yard dash) -- but my quickness is there."

No question, Vick's still in the conversation.
