Michael Vick signs with the Eagles for one more year
The Philadelphia Eagles re-signed Michael Vick on Monday to a one-year deal for the 2013 season, the team announced. Vick could make as much as $10 million next season, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
This contract replaces the six-year, $100 million contract Vick signed in 2011 and he now is scheduled to be a free agent after next season.
"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 (Foles) is, too. You want guys who want to compete."
Why would Vick replace the current contract for $10 million? It must not have been guaranteed.

2. I don't know why they bothered to fire Reid.
If you're just going to bring in another offensive "genius" whose radical scheme has even less chance of working than the standard west coast slop we've been dealing with and you're going to re-sign the turnover machine, injury waiting to happen, non defense reading dog killer, you should have just kept Reid.
