Michael Vick will be announced officially as an NFL analyst for Fox Sports on Sunday, reports USA Today.
Vick is a four-time Pro Bowl quarterback and started the summer off as a coaching intern with the Kansas City Chiefs. He will appear as a studio analyst for "FOX NFL Kickoff" and will also make regular appearances on FS1 studio shows.

"Over the last seven or eight months, I've done a lot of interviews, and I think I've gotten better as I've been put in those situations more often. Things really came together (with Fox) over the last couple months. They have shows that I have always watched and admired. My friends and family are thankful and proud of me," Vick told USA Today Sports.
Vick made news with Fox earlier in the summer when, in July, he suggested on FS1's "Speak For Yourself" that free-agent NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick should "cut his hair" and "just go clean-cut." Kaepernick drew criticism last NFL season for sitting down during the national anthem and remains without a team after leaving his contract with the San Francisco 49ers.
"I have never criticized guys, but I will be critical. Great players understand that. I've seen the reactions from my teammates watching shows in the team lounge when they disagree with something. I'm a credible guy and I think people will respect that," said Vick.
