DeSean Jackson: “It’s a no-brainer to keep him (Michael Vick) here”BREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Sunday, February 3rd, 2013
One of the big questions hovering over Chip Kelly and the Eagles is what to do about Michael Vick. Should they release him or should they keep him on the roster? Should they force him to take a paycut or should they keep him at the same salary and give him a shot to be this year’s starting quarterback?
Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was at the Super Bowl on Friday and he was asked about these questions involving his teammate and he left no doubt about what he thought should be done with the signal caller.
“For sure I can see it. Now that Chip Kelly is our offensive coordinator, I mean our head coach, Michael Vick I think it’s a no-brainer to keep him here,” Jackson said Friday in an interview with the NFL Network. “It fits his playing style and what he’s done perfect.”
Jackson seemed to give Vick the nod over Foles when he was asked about the two quarterbacks going forward.
“As far as Vick and Foles, I think we have two great quarterbacks, with Michael being a play-style quarterback that could be good for the Oregon offense,” Jackson told NFL.com. “I’m excited to see how it’s going to go with OTAs coming up soon.”
“Nick has arm strength out of this world,” Jackson said in the interview with CBSSports.com. “He surprised me [with how he read] the defense, being a certain defense, checking it if it was a run or if it was a pass getting the ball out of his hands. That’s the upside when you have a quarterback coming to the line doing things like that.”
“I think Vick is still capable of doing some great things, especially with Chip having that spread offense,” Jackson said.
This is going to be a huge decision for Kelly. Will he give Vick a chance or let him go?
