Michael Vick writes farewell letter to thank Eagles fans

Michael Vick is taking his football talents to New York after agreeing to terms with the Jets on Friday.

Just hours after the announcement was made, Vick penned and published a letter on the Philadelphia Enquirer's website thanking fans for their support. The left-handed quarterback noted how "tough" Eagles fan were but also called them "fair."

Here's an excerpt of what the NFL veteran had to say:

I would like to thank the Eagles and the entire city of Philadelphia. I was honored to be their quarterback and took the privilege to heart every day. I especially want to thank Jeffrey Lurie and Andy Reid, who gave me the opportunity. I want to thank my teammates, who were not just coworkers, but friends. I also want to thank the millions of fans who cheered and supported our team.

People say Philadelphia fans are tough. I say they are fair. A player is not judged solely by his past or promises of the future, but by his actions today, and the next day, and the next.

All in all, it was a pretty standard goodbye letter.
