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).

Quick was a surprise pick by the Eagles who soon developed into a great wide receiver. Quick is 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 several QB-WR combos as a NFL record), as the Eagles beat the Atlanta Falcons in the game. He retired due to severe patella tendinitis.

He played college football at North Carolina State University.

He is currently a color commentator for Philadelphia Eagles radio broadcasts on 94.1 WYSP and 610 WIP along with Merrill Reese.

Quick now resides in New Jersey with his sons, Ronson and Stephen.
