No surprise here, Eagles won’t be bringing Michael Vick back

michael vickAccording to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports,  the Eagles will not be re-signing quarterback Michael Vick and will rather let him become a free agent.

The Philadelphia Eagles will not be bringing back Michael Vick, according to league and team sources.

The Eagles are going in a different direction with the backup quarterback spot, and are not interested in retaining Vick, sources said. Nick Foles is their starter and they will explore other veterans to help man the position.

Sources say Vick’s injury history has given Philly pause, and he will explore other options in free agency. The Jets, Raiders and other teams are monitoring Vick. Vick played previously for Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg in Philadelphia.

There will be plenty of teams that could use Vick.  He just needs to stay healthy if he wants to play for more than one more season.  But injuries have been a part of his career.
