Now this is how you get ready for free agency.
Mike Vick, who will once again be open for business come March as a 35-year-old quarterback, recently spent some time in Dubai, a trendy spot for NFL players.
But not many can pull off this pic:

Vick is taking a break after a year in Pittsburgh that included three starts, a hamstring injury and work on the scout team, something he'd never done before.
The Steelers signed Vick in August after backup Bruce Gradkowski suffered a shoulder injury. Vick started three games after Ben Roethlisberger was injured, with mixed results. Vick completed 35 of 60 passes for 337 yards and two touchdowns during that stretch, which included a brutal 6-yard passing performance against Arizona in which he hurt his hamstring in the third quarter. He did lead Pittsburgh to a win in San Diego with savvy playmaking in the second half, guiding the Steelers to two touchdown drives late.
Vick has maintained he’s preserved his arm strength and speed and is eager for another chance. He’ll be 36 before the 2016 season.
