FLOWERY BRANCH, GA (CBS46) -

Former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick and wide receiver Roddy White will officially retire from the NFL, Monday June 12.

They will be honored by the Falcons at a press conference and reception. The press conference will include comments from Falcons owner and Chairman Arthur Blank, both retirees, as well as other guests.

“We consider all former Falcons to be Falcons for life, and part of our family,” Blank said. "Both men have made a huge impact on my family, our franchise and this city and we are thrilled to be able to honor both Roddy and Michael’s wishes to retire as Falcons, and celebrate their careers.”

Vick played six seasons in Atlanta, from 2001-2006, and was named to three Pro Bowls. He is the only quarterback in NFL history to rush for 1000 yards in a single season.

White was the 27th overall draft pick in the 2005 NFL. He played 11 seasons in Atlanta and still owns several Falcons receiving records. He amassed 808 receptions, 10,863 yards and 63 touchdowns in the 171 games he played in during 2005-2015.
