NFL Trade Rumors:
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that sources have informed him that the Eagles are “unlikely” to make a decision regarding Michael Vick‘s future with the team before February 6.
This just happens to be the date in which the $3 million of Vick’s $15.5 million salary will become guaranteed.
La Canfora’s sources have mentioned that Vick is not willing to take a pay cut to remain with the Eagles. La Canfora adds that Philadelphia could try to shop Vick around the league following the start of the new league year on March 13.
New head coach Chip Kelly is still evaluating the Eagles situation, so we may not hear anything regarding Vick’s status until a few weeks into February.

With their inception in 1933, the Philadelphia Eagles are one of the longest tenured professional football franchises. In sports, such longevity brings with it storied rivalries and rich traditions. Unfortunately, when it comes to the Eagles, one of those traditions is not stellar quarterback play. Like most NFL teams, over the years the Eagles have had their share of bombers and...
Michael Vick's future as an NFL quarterback is not likely to reach a speedy resolution.
Much has been made of the fact that $3 million of Vick's $16.5 million deal with the Eagles becomes guaranteed if he is on their roster come Feb. 6, but sources said that issue is not a concern at this time, and it's unlikely Vick's contract will be resolved before then.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has a clause in
his contract in which he’ll be guaranteed $3 million for next year on Feb. 6.

1. Quarterback The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to end the Michael Vick era this offseason. And while Nick Foles may be worth developing, he isn’t an immediate answer to their issues at quarterback. If they’re interested in keeping Foles, then signing a veteran makes the most sense. But if the new regime isn’t interested in Foles, Geno Smith may be a first-round option...
Philadelphia Eagles fans love Quarterback controversies, and there's no way around that. No one knows why, we just do. It might be because we're just infatuated with the idea of change, which would explain fans tracking Gus Bradley's plane across the country, hopping on the "Gus Bus" and then subsequently realizing they actually have no idea who he...

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, it’s “highly unlikely” that running back Reggie Bush will re-sign with the Miami Dolphins.
La Canfora believes Bush’s ability to make explosive plays as well as contribute on special teams should attract a number of teams in free agency.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, with NFL teams not wanting to spend much money on free agent running backs, Rashard Mendenhall could end up re-signing with the Steelers at a discounted rate.
