"He wanted to be here," new Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said Monday in his first meeting with the media following his opening news conference on Jan. 17. "I had never met him before. The one thing that attracted me to him is Michael is a competitor. Nick is, too. You want guys who want to compete."
In a statement, Vick said he was "grateful and proud" to be with the Eagles.

Meanwhile, the Buffalo Bills made some interesting moves on Monday, releasing linebacker Nick Barnett and strong safety George Wilson. Here is some of ESPN.com’s coverage of the releases:
"Moves like the ones we've made today are never easy, but we have to do what's best for our team and keep moving forward," general manager Buddy Nix said in a statement released by the team. "We've got some good young players on our roster, who we feel are ready to take the next step up. And they will now have the opportunity to do so."
The Bills are in transition once again after Marrone was hired last month to replace Chan Gailey, who was fired after three consecutive losing seasons. Marrone, the former Syracuse coach, has brought in an entirely new staff, including luring New York Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine to take over the same role in Buffalo.
Finally, the Detroit Lions seem to be in the running to land free agent running back Reggie Bush. Bush has spent seven years in the NFL, five years in New Orleans with Saints before spending the last two in Miami with the Dolphins.
