Quarterback Michael Vick has just recently signed a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. The contract states that the first year of the deal is for $1.6 million with an option heading into the second year for $5.2 million. Before convicted in August of 2007, Vick at one point was the highest paid player in the NFL. After serving time in jail, his suspension was rightfully lifted by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
Eagles head coach Andy Reid is looking forward to having Vick join training camp. He and starting quarterback Donovan McNabb assure that there will be no QB controversy. “I pretty much lobbied to get him here,” McNabb said. “I believe in second chances and what better place to get a second chance than here with this group of guys. He’s no threat to me, not for Kolb. We had the opportunity to add another weapon to our offense.” The Eagles will travel to Atlanta against Vick’s former team (Falcons) on Sunday, December 6th.
