Former Atlanta Falcons great still the all-time leading rusher
By Nick Halden
Despite having retired more than six years ago former Atlanta Falcons quarterback still holds one impressive league record. Vick is still the all-time leading rusher at the quarterback position totaling 6,109-rushing yards during his time in the league with the bulk of this production happening in Atlanta and Philly.
Vick will long be remembered by Atlanta Falcons fans as the second-best quarterback in franchise history right behind current Colt Matt Ryan. If not for his regrettable off-the-field decisions it is interesting to wonder how great Vick could have been in Atlanta, and how many more rushing yards the quarterback could have piled up?
The closest thing we have seen to Vick in the league since is Lamar Jackson whose overwhelming speed and quick cuts are reminiscent of the former Falcons quarterback. Despite having put together a great start to his career Lamar is still not inside the top five when it comes to all-time quarterback yards.
After Vick, there are surprising names on the list one of which will have a chance to catch Vick if the right opportunity is given. With this in mind, let’s take a look at the rest of the all-time leading rushers at the quarterback position.
