Michael Vick posted his best statistical season in 2006 -- his last
year in the NFL -- when he rushed for 1,039 yards, a league record for
quarterbacks.

Vick's agent, Joel Segal, told NFL.com's Steve Wyche that the Philadelphia Eagles
signed the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback Thursday. A league source
told NFL Network's Jason La Canfora that the Eagles gave Vick a
one-year, $1.6 million contract with a team option exceeding $5 million
for a second year. Financial terms of the deal weren't known, but the Eagles are expected to introduce Vick at a press conference Friday. Vick, the No. 1 overall draft pick by the Atlanta Falcons
in 2001, once was the highest-paid player in football, but he hasn't
played since 2006 when his career came tumbling down. He was convicted
in August 2007 of conspiracy and running a dogfighting operation,
sentenced to 23 months in federal prison, indefinitely suspended by NFL
commissioner Roger Goodell and later released by the Falcons. But
after Vick served his time and was released from home confinement July
20, Goodell conditionally lifted the quarterback's suspension --
allowing him to sign with a team. That team is the Eagles, who have Donovan McNabb as their starting quarterback and Kevin Kolb,
a 2007 second-round draft pick, behind him. McNabb is a five-time Pro
Bowler and has led Philadelphia to one Super Bowl and five NFC
championship games, but Kolb is untested. Kolb sprained a ligament in
his left knee earlier in the week, keeping him out of Thursday night's
preseason opener against the New England Patriots. Vick
can immediately take part in the Eagles' preseason practices, workouts
and meetings, and he can play in the final two preseason games. Vick
can apply for full reinstatement by Week 6 in October, and if he's
eligible to play by Dec. 6, he could face his former team, the Falcons,
when the Eagles visit the Georgia Dome. Retired Indianapolis Colts
coach Tony Dungy, who's serving as Vick's mentor, told The Associated
Press on Wednesday that he believed the quarterback would sign with a
team this week. However, Dungy acknowledged that Vick would work from a
small list of teams because many wouldn't want to sign him and risk a
potential backlash from fans. "It's a complex issue," Dungy
said. "You have to get past the possible reaction of fans, and it has
to be a team that has an opening and has (salary) cap room." The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Hank dont be a wonker pick a team and stick with it ffs and anyway he is a backup QB which unless mcnabb gets injured means he will get paid for picking splinters out of his arse on the bench.

Geez thats going to be one hell of lineup at QB mcnabb and vick.

Big news. Its good to see him back. I would have rather him at Detroit or Minesota where he'd have more of a chance of getting a starting spot soon. He will probably be used as a utility for wildcat plays which could make the philly offense more unpredictable.

they released him ages ago and they never wanted him. they moved on when they signed Matt Ryan.

i was hoping Vick could go to a team where he could start, but hey, better than noone.

I doubt you'll see Wildcat, but you might see Philly play Vick in the slot occasionally.

Good question, I know Peyton would never leave Indy and its only when a QB is very average that a team would give away their starting QB. I would have to stay with Indy though. Players will always come and go, you have to stay solid to your team. That's why I admire Kvltism for sticking so solid to the Raiders.

Does anyone get the feeling that since Vick is in, Mcnabb is on the way out? He was in the hotseat for a period last year and rebounded by driving philly to the playoffs. I thought his job was safe but there must be more to the signing than just a solid bckup and a good player to use in the wildcat.

Any thoughts?

mcnabb will be going no where...

they just redid his contract didnt they?

vick would havent been able to start this year as it would have been to much pressure on him. he needs time to get back into the game and the week to week stuff.

this is probably one of the best options he could have taken... you will probably see him out at a new club next year.

Supposedly, Reid wants to work on Vick so that it would be possible to transition him in as a legit QB. If you don't see a big season from Donovan this season, then the fight will be on for that starter's job.

Worst-case scenario: Philly have got a decent backup QB that can step in on a few run/pass packages.
Best-case scenario: They have a ready-made successor to groom into McNabb's role.

yeah as manning said i was talking about hank changing his teams just like that Smile
me too, its interesting i woulda thought he would go to a team where he was the main qb but as philly showed last yr they arent afraid to bench mcnabb, so he may get some time
