QB Michael Vick looks forward to a return to the NFL next season, and he's putting potential suitors on notice that they better not try to pull a Tim Tebow on him.   "I'm not a backup", Vick told Tim McManus of Birds 24/7.   "Just being honest, just being candid. I'm a full-fledged starter," . "That's what I've got in me, that's what I provide, that's what I offer. Whatever happens, wherever I end up, they're going to get 110 percent. You're going to get the same thing out of me that you got the last two, three years, and that's 110 percent effort and a guy that's confident in his abilities to play and win."    Vick had been pretty gracious with the Philadelphia Eagles after being relegated to the number 3 spot on the depth chart, but that was only temporary. Now, he's very adamant about his expectations for next year... Hell, he used the cliche '110 percent' twice!   He sees himself as a bona fide starter come next season, wherever he may land. "I want to start. Yeah, I'm a starter."   "I just feel like I have made so many strides as far as learning the defensive part of the game and kind of piecing it together with the offense. I feel like over the last two years I've kind of gotten better in the protection game and learning defensive schemes," Vick said.   "I've got prime left, man. I'm just getting started."   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
