6:41pm: The two sides have talked and will continue to, even though Vick wants to start, tweets Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports (via Twitter) has a similar take, saying that no doors are closed to Vick.
5:55pm: Michael Vick will not be back with the Eagles in any capacity in 2014, tweets Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com. Philadelphia is moving in a different direction with their backup role and, of course, the No. 1 slot is occupied by Nick Foles.
The news that the Eagles won’t re-sign Vick is far from surprising. While Vick’s injury history and age (34 in June) aren’t working in his favor, he stands as one of the most desirable free agent quarterbacks in an offseason where there are several teams looking. The former Falcons superstar believes that he’ll be a starter in 2014 and it’s hard to argue with him as the Jaguars, Texans, Browns, Vikings, Buccaneers, and Raiders are all looking for a new signal callers. Other clubs, like the Jets, could conceivably get in on Vick.
