Michael Anthony Quick (born May 14, 1959) is a former American football wide receiver. He played professionally in the National Football League (NFL) with the Philadelphia Eagles for nine seasons, from 1982 to 1990. Quick played college football at North Carolina State University.

Playing career[edit]

A surprise first-round pick by the Eagles in the 1982 NFL Draft, Quick developed into a five-time Pro Bowler, selected consecutively from 1983 to 1987. He led the NFL in receiving yards in 1983 with 1,409 and finished second in 1985 with a total of 1,247. On November 10, 1985, Mike Quick caught a 99-yard touchdown pass from Ron Jaworski in overtime (an Eagles team record, and tied with eleven other QB-WR combos as an NFL record), as the Eagles beat the Atlanta Falcons in the game. He retired because of severe patella tendinitis.

Personal life[edit]

Quick is currently a color commentator for Philadelphia Eagles radio broadcasts on WTEL 610 AM and WIP-FM 94.1 along with Merrill Reese. He resides in Marlton, New Jersey. His son Ronson played basketball at Assumption College from 2009 to 2012.
