Now that the Philadelphia Eagles have said good bye to Andy Reid, some say that Michael Vick is next to go. Eagles’ wide receiver, DeSean Jackson does not want that to happen. In an interview on Friday on the NFL Network Jackson said that bringing Vick back is a “no-brainer.” Jackson noted, “For sure I can see it. Now that Chip Kelly is our offensive coordinator, I mean our head coach, Michael Vick I think it’s a no-brainer to keep him here. It fits his playing style and what he’s done perfect.” There were reports last year that came out saying Vick did not want to change anything in his current contract to help the Eagles with the team’s salary. If things stay the same and Vick returns to the Eagles, he will look to make a little over $15 million next year. Plus Vick has $3 million coming his way this month, so we should see what the Eagles plan to do with Michael Vick soon. DeSean Jackson also commented on the hiring of head coach Chip Kelly on the interview with NFL Network.  “Honestly, I don’t know what it is exactly he’s going to do, but all I can say is I’m very excited. That conversation we had with Chip. He was like, ‘Man, now I’m happy I can coach you and have you scoring against other teams instead of me.’ “Jackson said. The Eagles went 4-12 this past year and the fans in Philly are hoping Chip can add a spark to the team that has a lot of big names and could make a run at making the playoffs this upcoming season.
