The Philadelphia Eagles and quarterback Michael Vick were thought to have a looming deadline of today, Feb. 6. However, a clause in Vick’s contract will allow the Eagles to delay a decision on whether or not to cut the veteran, pushing a decision back as far as March 12, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. As expected, the Eagles will take advantage of a provision in Michael Vick's contract and won't release the quarterback before a Wednesday deadline guarantees him $3 million, sources close to the situation said. The Eagles are not expected to bring Vick back at his 2013 salary of $15.5 million. Entering the offseason, it appeared that if Philadelphia kept Vick on its roster through today, it would be forced to pay him $3 million in guarantees. However, a clause will push this back until March 12, as the Eagles could cut Vick up until that point and not have to pay the $3 million guaranteed as long as the quarterback’s next team pays him more than $3 million. Vick won’t be back for $15.5 million. It seems that if he is willing to renegotiate his deal, he could potentially return with the Eagles as he appears to be a fit for Chip Kelly’s system. Vick could also refuse to negotiate, or the Eagles could elect to cut him regardless, causing him to hit the open market.
