New Eagles coach Chip Kelly, master of a spread offense that was so potent at Oregon, met with his quarterbacks on Friday, Mike Vick and Nick Foles, and gave neither a firm commitment for the 2013 season, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports citing sources.
Both meetings were pleasant and Kelly had good things to say about both, but Vick remains unwilling to significantly alter his contract in order to stay with the Eagles. Several teams are eyeing him as potential free agent and he is likely to depart. Vick is set to make $16.5 million next season and, while it's conceivable he could stay should he be guaranteed to make in the $15 million range, sources said he's not going to take a big hit to remain.
There have been no negotiations between the sides to this point, sources said, and the Eagles have until Feb. 6 to make a decision.
