Michael Anthony Quick (born May 14, 1959 in Hamlet, North Carolina) is a former American football wide receiver who played his entire career with the Philadelphia Eagles (1982-1990).

Playing career[edit]

He played college football at North Carolina State University. 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.


He is currently a color commentator for Philadelphia Eagles radio broadcasts on WTEL 610 AM and WIP-FM 94.1 along with Merrill Reese. Quick now resides in Marlton, New Jersey with his sons, Ronson, who plays basketball at Assumption College, and Stephen.
