Michael Vick has never wasted his time with false humility.

In an interview with the "Dan Patrick Show," he said that he thinks he's the speediest quarterback of them all, even faster than Colin Kaepernick, Robert Griffin III.

"These guys are young and they're fast and they're quick; the thing I do have is a very quick get-up," said Vick, who turns 33 in just over a month.

"I really don't feel like there's a quarterback in the league who 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 RG III is fast as well."

Earlier in May, Vick beat Philadelphia Eagles teammate LeSean McCoy in the 40-yard dash at practice. McCoy, however, later claimed Vick cheated. 

Vick is the NFL's career leader in rushing yards among quarterbacks with 5,551.
