Welcome Back Michael Vick….First Stop Philly

After an uncertain search for a new franchise, Michael Vick has finally secured a contract and a new home!


Good bye Atlanta, Hello Philadelphia!


Michael Vick has just signed a two year contract with the Philly Eagles.  The first year of the deal is for $1.6 million with an option for the second year at $5.2 million.  He can also earn up to $3million dollars in incentives for the duration of the contract.

The deal might seem as a major downgrade for the former highest paid player in NFL, but given his circumstances this opportunity is a blessing sent from above.

Vick has not played since 2006 and his life came tumbling down after being convicted in August 2007 of conspiracy and running a dog fighting operation, sentenced to 23 months in federal prison and suspended indefinitely by the NFL.

Talk about second chances!

Vick won’t be fully reinstated until about week 6 by the NFL, but is allowed to attend practices and other team related activities.

He comes in under starting QB Donovan McNabb, who led his team to the playoffs last year and ended the year with a 9-6-1 record.


Vick is said to be utilized as another weapon, especially in a variation of the Wildcats offense and his knowledge of West Coast offense.

McNabb was consulted prior to this decision and stated the following,

“I pretty much lobbied to get him here,” McNabb said. “I believe in second chances and what better place to get a second chance than here with this group of guys. … He’s no threat to me, not for Kolb. We had the opportunity to add another weapon to our offense.”

Well Said McNabb!
