Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has a clause in
his contract in which he’ll be guaranteed $3 million for next year on Feb. 6.
Still, the Eagles aren’t in a hurry to make a decision on Vick’s future, as the
guaranteed money isn’t a major issue for the team. For this reason, Vick’s situation
and Philadelphia’s ultimate decision on the veteran doesn’t appear to be coming
soon, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.
Vick is currently owed $16.5 million if he’s on the Eagles’
roster next season. Considering he lost his starting job to rookie Nick Foles
last season, most expected Philadelphia to cut ties with Vick and his contract
after the end of the season.
However, the hiring of Chip Kelly stalled these plans, as
Vick would appear to be a better fit in the former Oregon coach’s spread
offense than Foles. Because of this, The Eagles could ask Vick to restructure
his contract in order to remain with the club and hold down the QB position for
at least another year. Or, the Eagles could elect to trade Vick in March once
the league year begins.
Whatever their decision on Vick, the Eagles don’t appear to
be poised to make it soon.
