Eagles restructure Vick contract to keep him in Philly
The Eagles have announced that they have come to an agreement on a restructured contract with quarterback Michael Vick that will keep him in Philadelphia for the 2013 season.
Vick threw for 2362 yards in 2012 on 58.1 per cent passing, with an additional 332 yards coming on the ground to go with 12 touchdown passes and one rushing touchdown. He was originally slated to earn $16 million next season.
Vick, who was injured and inconsistent last season, eventually giving way to rookie Nick Foles, now has a three-year contract, and will compete with Foles to see who runs new coach Chip Kelly's offense this season.
Andy Reid was fired as coach the day after the season ended, and Kelly was hired last month. Vick, who will be 33 when next season begins, seems equipped to run Kelly's aggressive, up-tempo offense that he is bringing to the Eagles from Oregon.
