    Michael Vick and the Eagles needed each other for 2013. It's a win-win. They succeed, they stay together. They don't they break up.

    Eagles QB Michael Vick signed a one-year deal that could be worth up to $10 million.

    Vick's new deal is technically a three-year deal, but, per the contract, final two years void in mid-March. So it's a one-year deal.

    Michael Vick is being brought back to "compete" for a starting job, per an NFL source.

    Eagles are going to be really fun to watch next season. Literally anything could happen there, but whatever it is, it's going to be dramatic.

    Yeah, I heard about this a little earlier.

    Vick with Chip...If Vick can muster it up for a year...the Eagles could be dangerous.

    Or a complete circus.

    Pretty smart move by the Eagles. Vick gets one year with Kelly to see if he can run his system, at minimal risk to the team. Should be entertaining.

    I think the Eagles made a huge mistake. Wasting 10 million on a player that has suffered many concussions and can't even finish most games due to other injuries. Money better spent bringing in someone else.

    That's the thing - the Eagles don't really have another option to run Chip's system. Isn't the contract incentive based?

    It'll be interesting to see the details of the contract. From the looks of it, it seems like the eagles are getting the better end of the deal.

    Sounds like it is only worth $10 million if Vick meets some incentives. If he doesn't, then the cost goes down. I wonder how much Vick was scheduled to make this year had he not re-worked his contract.

    This was the first thing I looked at.

    I think most of us would sign up for a certain 35 million and change. But especially after his situation.

    I suspect they'll add some read-option packages a d want to see how he does with those. That would make sense given his dangerous speed.

    If he does well then they'll pick up his 2 year option.

    So even the contracts are using the read-option now! ;)

    I see it more as an indictment of the talent pool for the draft concerning QB's, this was my first thought, second thought the boys caught a break. Golden Tate we are waiting for you laddie....

    I think that Philly was interested in Vick because he will be the link, for Chip Kelly to the rest of the team. Also, he can be an effective read option QB. He will fit what Kelly want's to do there IMO. I think Kelly knows who he wants at QB but I also think that they probably don't want to throw, whomever that is, to the wolves in the 1st year. Vick will help with the transition. If he fails, he's a built in excuse for Kelly, which is a big deal in Philly because the fan base is brutal.

    Exactly where I am coming from with this one.

    The fit works. Up to Vick to see if he can get it done on a team that has talent, but...

    I honestly think it will be a total flop.

    Good news for the Cowboys. Vick is the new McNabb (in the latter years of his career). He is at the point where I want to see him take the field against us.

    They've always been dangerous on offense. To me the big question is whether they can shore up their defensive issues and turnover problems.

    Year one, I think it very well might be, too. It's going to all depend on how well Chip can adjust to running his offense in a league where he doesn't have an amazing athletic advantage over everybody else. I don't think what he did in Oregon will translate directly. I don't know what to think, yet, about what he might do to adjust it for the NFL. I do think it'll probably be a year or two process for him, and I don't think it'll be driven by Mike Vick.

    One thing of note, though, Kelly and Belichik have spent time in recent offseasons, comparing notes. NE does a pretty good job of borrowing the elements they think will work in this league. That's a pretty good blueprint to start from.

    Great news. As long as Vick is the 1 qb of the Eagles, they'll continue to struggle. He's a turnover machine and can't stay healthy.
