Reports: Vick To Be Around A While Or Vick To Be Released This WeekBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Tuesday, February 5th, 2013
I don’t know what the Eagles are going to do about releasing, renegotiating with or just hanging onto Michael Vick, but ESPN NFL reporter, was on the ESPN Mike and Mike radio show today and he believes the Eagles will release Vick by Friday of this week.
In another report on Eagles 24/7, Tim McManus reports that the Birds will hang onto Vick past the February 6 deadline. It seems that the Birds are taking as much time as possible before making decisions, so I expect Vick to be around for a while.
“It doesn’t sound like they’re going to try to renegotiate his contract and if that’s going to be the case he’ll be released,” Clayton said to the Mike and Mike Show hosts. ”Now that doesn’t close the door for him trying to re-sign, but there’s no way they’re going to guarantee him $45.5 million over the next three years. They still have a few days to reach out, but you kind of get the idea that the fact that Chip Kelly is still not in the position to make the decision on Michael Vick.”
“He’s sorting out the defensive coordinator position. He’s sorting out a lot of different things in his coaching staff, and the big decision he’s going to have to make is what he’s going to do at quarterback. It just doesn’t seem there’s enough time right now for him to be able to keep Vick under the current contract. So come later this week on Friday it looks like he’ll be released, available to everyone else, including the Philadelphia Eagles.”
