DeSean Jackson Says Michael Vick Will Be Philadelphia Eagles Starting Quarterback

It’s been a busy day for Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver, DeSean Jackson.

In addition to busting a few verses in his new rap song featuring Snoop Dogg, Jackson said that he expects Michael Vick to be the Philadelphia Eagles starting quarterback when training camp breaks.

Per Jackson, via PhillyMag.com:

“In my opinion, honestly, I don’t want to be put on the spot, I know y’all gonna do me like that, but Michael Vick’s got a lot of confidence in himself. He’s been there, going on 12 years in the NFL, I think he’ll get the job,” Jackson said during an ESPN interview. “Nick Foles is a great, great talent coming in from Arizona, actually a Pac-12 guy. He has the hype, he has the skills as well too. Going into camp, I think Michael Vick will probably be the starter, but we still don’t know. I think Chip Kelly’s gonna keep everybody honest and keep everybody open.”

Some pundits (especially those from CSNPhilly.com) have hinted that Eagles head coach Chip Kelly will settle with Nick Foles as the starting quarterback, but not according to DeSean who favors the chemistry he has with Vick.
