Falcons: Fan Controlled Football set to host some familiar faces

The Fan Controlled Football League is one of the most innovative and unique sports leagues around. If having all the games in Atlanta wasn’t enough to entice you, they’re set to have a couple of former Falcons join the league in some capacity.

It was announced that former UGA and Falcons running back Todd Gurley will jump on board as a co-owner of the Beasts. He joins a team that already has Marshawn Lynch, Miro, Marcus Peters, and Renee Montgomery as owners. However, this isn’t the only notable FCF news:

According to a report that has made the rounds on Twitter, Michael Vick will play in the last week of the regular season. Although he hasn’t been assigned a team yet, there’s a chance Vick will end up on the same team as Terrell Owens — the Knights. The FCF is a really exciting league where fans can pick the plays, draft the players, and vote on a variety of other topics. Games are free on Twitch, and I would highly recommend checking one out. You can sign up on their website here.
