Here’s an interesting nugget of information. The Atlanta Falcons cap numbers in 2012 included $3 million in cap room credit from Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick’s settling of debt with the team.Vick owed the Falcons money from a signing bonus received in 2007.
The credit ends a salary cap grievance by the Falcons against Vick. Atlanta was his biggest creditor in the financial ruin that beset him in the week of dog fighting charges. Vick owed the team $7.5 million after defaulting on his 2005 contract.
Atlanta received the credit from the league in March, but the inclusion of the credit from Vick was only recently reported .

The Philadelphia Eagles have been assigned a 2012 rookie salary pool of $5.96 million, which includes a cap of $32.83 million, according to Ravens Insider reporter Aaron Wilson.
The pool figure of $5.96 consists of the amount the Eagles are able to spend for their rookies’ base salaries. In essence, the base salaries of all nine rookies cannot exceed that amount in 2012.
Only a few years ago, the Atlanta Falcons reached an unprecedented feat after a judge held Michael Vick had to repay a portion of his signing bonus, a portion usually considered guaranteed, due to his extracurricular activities.
Many said Michael Vick would never be able to afford to pay back the $6.5 million, but our former disappointment has paid off his creditors, followed by...

Given the recent news regarding the Philadelphia Eagles’ decision to retire Brian Dawkins’ jersey, Ike Reese of 94 WIP made a statement on Twitter the other day that I thought would be a good subject of debate.

I wasn’t joking, I think McNabb’s #5 should be retired by the Eagles eventually. Let’s wait awhile though! Time heals all...
Free agent Vince Young is looking for a job after not being re-signed by the Philadelphia Eagles after spending the 2011 season with the team. As far as Young is concerned, it’s because Andy Reid feels he’s too talented to be just a backup.
Bless his heart.
Young has received his first call from a potential suitor via the Buffalo Bills, who Young will work out for on Wednesday...
