    Default Vick to Eagles

    Michael Vick to the Eagles on a Two Year*Contract - Arrowhead Pride

    So Vick to Chiefs can be put to rest.

    Edit (additonal sources):

    Michael Vick signs two-year deal with Philadelphia Eagles - ESPN
    Flying to Philly: Reinstated QB Vick signs two-year deal with Eagles
    Report: Vick lands with Eagles | National Football Post

    They all cite Mort. but we all know how sketchy his sources can be

    Edit 2: In spite of any personal opinions one can't deny that the Eagles are loaded on offense. The addition of Vick only adds another dimension to an already stacked corps of specialist (Maclin, McNabb, DeSean, Westbrook, Vick, Curtis, McCoy, etc...)

    Despite the horrendous things he's done, I'm sure Vick will behave as a stand-up guy the remainder of his NFL career. Whether this behavior truly reflects the man's actual moral compass doesn't really matter. Vick paid just about the most severe of tolls for his actions and had "the life" taken away from him. It visibly shook him. He wants money more than he wants to see dogs slaughter each other.

    Don't get me wrong, I think the guy's an (pardon the pun) S.O.B for essentially torturing animals, but I'm quite certain that he at least learned that he can't indulge in behavior like that while he's associated with an international commercial product like the NFL.

    I am curious, though, if the Eagles will find a way to get Michael in their offense this year, since he probably won't be playing QB unless McNabb gets hurt. I'm also wondering about the figures. How much did he get signed for? He was bragging a few months back that he'd get a 30 or 50 mil contract. It would really ease my mind to know that he got something significantly less.
    i heard 1.6 mil this year and somewhere around 5 next year

    Hey!!! Another name from the past reappears, good to have you back.

    I think your post is a good one. I think it is a safe bet that he is not going to blow his second chance. Especially since there are going to be so many eyes on him right now. I doubt he will be able to take a piss without someone looking over his shoulder.


    Are you man enough? Eric Berry? Apparently Not!

    As if I needed another reason to DESPISE the Ickles more!

    I knew he'd go to a team with no class like this one. And Andy Reid even said 2 days ago that they have NO interest in him. Priceless!

    Apparently the Philly fans are happy. Tickets to his first possible game back are selling like crazy.

    It's mixed really, as it probably would be with any team that got him. Local talk radio and news reports have played quotes of fans on both sides from everything to "I think it's great and he deserves a second chance" to "He doesn't belong on our team let alone a football field at all. A second chance in life is one thing but playing in the NFL is a priviledge."

    Hey I think he's a troublemaker like TO and will only hurt the team so that's great he's in Philly. McNabb hasn't been what he used to be in the early five years of this decade, since his aging and his injuries. So this could also set up a QB controversy.

    What? McNabb looks great! He may not run like he used to, but he is a very good quarterback..
    IM baffled why they signed him, they don't need him. But maybe thats why they took a chance on him.

    They signed Vick because their offensive playmakers have been dropping like flies from injuries. Vick will be a decoy and a Wildcat guy, nothing more. And he's never going to see that 2nd year money - it was probably only included so he could save face.

    As tough as Philly fans are, it's gotta be better than jail and a lot of money.

    As long as Reid handles it right, I think they'll be OK. I'm just glad he's not a Chief
