Michael Vick has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles according to his agent, Joel Segal, but before you run out and buy Philadelphia Eagles Season Tickets, you may want to wait and see if he even plays this year.
After being released from federal prison in May for his dogfighting conviction, Vick was reinstated into the NFL on a conditional basis in July, that may allow him to resume full play in October.
This is going to be interesting since the current starting quarterback for the Eagles is Donovan McMahon, who had record stats last year with 416 points, 3916 yards, 345 completions on 547 attempts on the way to the Eagles fifth NFC Championship game and 2004 Super Bowl appearance with McMahon as starting quarterback.
Because of his contribution to the team, McMahon’s contract was restructured in June for the final two years for a whopping $24 million. At best, Michael Vick would have to wait a year to start for any team unless McMahon goes down. And if Donovan McMahon has another banner year, they’ll be losing Vick with his option on the second year, but for $1.6 million, it’s good insurance.
