Michael Vick Staying With Philadelphia Eagles; Two Sides Agree to Restructured Deal

One of the biggest questions of the 2013 NFL offseason has just been answered. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to a one-year restructured contract with quarterback Michael Vick. The deal will keep Vick in Philadelphia at a discounted price.

Here is Schefter’s report:



Vick teamed up with new Eagles head coach Chip Kelly? Oh, this is going to be fun. Vick’s skill set will fit right into the wheelhouse of what Kelly wants to install with the Eagles offense. Of course, Vick will first need to beat out Nick Foles for the team’s starting quarterback gig.

The restructured deal is a three-year deal that will essentially turn into a one-year contract when the final two years are voided out on March 15.

It was believed that Vick would be headed for the free agent market following the season, but this latest development will leave quarterback needy teams with one fewer option before the 2013 NFL Draft. The big winners in this deal? Alex and Geno Smith.

Vick is now eligible for unrestricted free agency in 2014.
