Michael Vick has said he hopes Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly will name a starting quarterback before training camp begins and that sentiment is shared by DeSean Jackson, the Associated Press reports.
“The team wants to know too,” Jackson said Tuesday in an interview with the NFL Network’s “Total Access” program. “We need to go into training camp prepared and know who is going to be our starting quarterback.”
The Eagles finished their mandatory three-day minicamp last week and won’t practice again until training begins in late July.
Vick, Nick Foles and rookie Matt Barkley competed in practices and each had chances running the No. 1 unit. Kelly made it clear following the minicamp that depth charts mean nothing in May and June no matter if it’s quarterback or any other position.
“To make any decisions on who someone is from wearing shorts and T-shirts, doesn’t make sense to us,” Kelly said.
It sounds like Desean Jackson is trying to make moves, last week he fired his agent, and t

I can definitely predict that Tim Tebow and DeSean Jackson will never be teammates during their careers. Definitely not the kind that gets along.
Jackson was on NFL Network promoting his new documentary, and told the panel that Tebow “is not good enough to be an NFL quarterback.”

Michael Vick fired the first salvo last week when he admitted his frustration with the Eagles quarterback depth chart, and simply asked head coach Chip Kelly to name a quarterback before camp starts.
It seems that his teammates are now starting to voice that same sentiment. DeSean Jackson appeared on NFL AM yesterday, and according to the Star Ledger, stated that the Eagles as...
Last week, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick told the media he’d like head coach Chip Kelly to choose a starting quarterback before training camp begins. Well now the other Eagles that had complained about his practice role, wide receiver DeSean Jackson, has chimed in with his two cents. To no surprise to anyone, he agrees with Vick.
“I have been hearing some things...
Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was a guest on the NFL Network and he didn’t have a problem being honest about what he thinks about Tim Tebow as an NFL quarterback.
“Forty-six percent (completion percentage)? This is not basketball, that is not good enough,” Jackson said, via Larry Brown Sports. “He has the mentality to come in and be a leader and all that good stuff...
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick has made it clear in recent days that it would be his preference to have a starter named before the start of training camp. And though perhaps it would have been best for him to keep this thought to himself, you can’t really blame him for feeling that way. Who wouldn’t want to have certainty about their job status heading into camp?

While Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson are eager to know who will be the Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback, it's clear Chip Kelly isn't picking a guy before training camp.
Kelly's logic makes sense to others.
