Report: Michael Vick’s has to lead the Eagles to the playoffs to save his career

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, league sources have told him that if quarterback Michael Vick doesn’t lead the Eagles to the playoff this season, he likely won’t be playing in Philly next season.

“If Vick is on the Eagles roster Feb. 6, 2013, three days after this season’s Super Bowl, $3 million of his nearly $16 million salary becomes fully guaranteed. But if the Eagles opt to release Vick before Feb. 6, 2013, they will not have any financial obligation to him and his contract will come off their salary cap without any charge,” wrote Schefter.

It sounds like the Eagles are confident enough in rookie quarterback Nick Foles to take over the reigns next season.

I wonder if Eagles head coach Andy Reid would also be let go if they don’t make the playoffs this season.
