WATCH: Michael Vick is ‘extremely proud’ of fellow Virginia Tech legend Tyrod Taylor

Michael Vick and Tyrod Taylor are two of the greatest quarterbacks in Virginia Tech history. While Vick’s 13-season pro career ended in 2016, Taylor has helped the Buffalo Bills get off to a 4-2 start this season.

Working with FOX Sports, Vick traveled to Buffalo to visit with Taylor in advance of the Bills’ 30-27 victory vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

This season, Taylor has amassed 1,178 passing yards and seven touchdown passes.

The pair have developed a bond and friendship over the years, as Taylor has leaned on Vick for plenty of advice.

Vick: “A lot of people don’t know that we trained together in 2011 when you came out for the draft.”

Taylor: “You definitely helped me throughout my career. Growing up watching you, everyone from our areas was fans of the Falcons, fans of the Eagles. It’s just our attachment to you.”

Vick: “That makes me feel old too but it’s all good. (Laughs)”

Taylor: “I try to take everything that you taught me. It was a short span but who better to learn it from than you?”

Vick: “That’s amazing to me now that you get it, that you understand the game. Experience is the best teacher. I’m extremely proud of you, man. You came a long way.”

In two seasons at Virginia Tech, Vick amassed 3,279 yards and 21 touchdowns passes, while having 1,216 yards and 17 touchdowns on the ground.

Vick, led the nation in passing efficiency as helped guide Virginia Tech to an 11-1 record and the national championship game in 1999.

In his four seasons at Virginia Tech, Taylor finished with 7,017 passing yards, 44 passing touchdowns, 2,196 rushing yards and 23 rushing touchdowns.

Taylor was named the ACC Player of the Year in 2010.

The Bills will host the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 29 in a 1 p.m. (EST) matchup on CBS.
