No trade rumors for Michael Vick. Vick restructured his contract with the Eagles into a one-year deal on Feb. 11, according to the New York Daily News. This new deal eliminates any speculation that Vick will join or replace Mark Sanchez.
Ever since former Oregon coach Chip Kelly joined the team, speculation mounted regarding Vick’s time with the team. After a rough season in 2012, no one knew for sure whether the 32-year-old would make to the next season with the team. According to the New York Daily News, Vick suffered a concussion in Week 10 and Nick Foles was named the starter for the remainder of the season. However, when Foles injured his hand, Vick played in the season finale against the Giants.
Vick’s restructured deal is reportedly for up to $10 million with incentives. Under his old contract, Vick expected to make $15.5 million in 2013.
Signing the contract does not guarantee Vick the starting job for the team. “There’s an open competition,” said the coach. “Nick (Foles) knew every step of the way what we were doing.”
