After the last game of the 2012 regular season for the Philadelphia Eagles, the future for QB Michael Vick remained in doubt. Due an exorbitant salary number in 2013, many pundits speculated that the Eagles would be releasing the quarterback shortly after the Super Bowl in order to save the amount Vick was reportedly due as a roster bonus.
