Found February 08, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
Michael Vick remains on the Philadelphia Eagles’ roster, though it’s not clear how much longer we’ll be able to say that. However, according to Mike Freeman of CBS Sports, new Eagles head coach Chip Kelly “likes the idea” of retaining Vick at a reduced price. A person familiar with the Eagles' thinking says new coach Chip Kelly likes the idea of keeping Vick (at a cheaper price) but genuinely doesn't know exactly what he has with the quarterback. As things currently stand, if Vick is on the Eagles’ roster next season he’ll earn $15.5 million. The Eagles still have an opportunity to part ways with the veteran quarterback if they do so before early March, but it may be more likely that neither of these two scenarios take place. Instead, the Eagles could convince Vick to return on a lesser deal as a potential starter/backup for the club. It’s not clear who Vick would be starting ahead of or backing up at this point, and Kelly isn’t likely to be able to guarantee the veteran much right now. Vick does have a home in New Jersey and his new bride owns a small business in the Philadelphia area. He’s said he wants to be a starter in the NFL, but he could ultimately decide to stay where he’s comfortable and help the Eagles bridge the gap to their next quarterback.
