Vick is only getting that 10 million if he wins the Super Bowl. That's how these incentives work. You need pro bowls, mvps, and super bowl victories to get ALL the incentives.

And he's still better than Ponder. Laughing


No he is not


It is no question Vick is a better passer. Vick's worse year with the Eagles (this past season) his quarterback rating was right on par with Ponder's.

Ponder is brutal. He reads a defense about as well as Vick, has a noodle arm comparatively and is just all around not a very good passer. If you take Ponder over Vick you're crazy (age not being a factor in this instance).

I'm happy with this re-signing I think Vick in a dumbed down offense will be a tremendous asset.

People forget he ran a lot of zone-read in his days with Atlanta. I'm not sure how people think he is incapable of reading a DE. Laughing

Is any of it guaranteed? If not then it's a great move by Philly - they let him compete without owing him anything and save all the money they would have had ot pay him if they kept him on his old contract or had to resign him as a FA.


More than was previously - but less than it would cost long term to cut him I believe....no official numbers yet though.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly said at his press conference today that Vick and Nick Foles will compete throughout the offseason, and Kelly won’t pick a Week One starter until he takes his time to watch them compete against each other in minicamps, training camp and the preseason

They can't even cut him TBH...so you take a 3 million dollar hit, plus isn't the new 89% rule in effect? You'd have to replace his money with a FA making as much as him....You don't have that money on the bench, either. Unless you have Kaepernick starting. Vick is the starter next year

So... Dennis Dixon won't be competing for the starting job, then? I kind of expected a 3-way competition.

Dennis Dixon is not an Eagle, he's a FA right now. That report was speculation, although he might be signed by us.

And if he is, I highly doubt he'll win the job. But I guess you never know.

It looks bad right now but you never know how these things can go. Everyone thought harbaugh was a fool for sticking with Alex smith...

Eagles should still draft a rookie to develop (or maybe foles is that guy). But maybe a new system and coaching can maximize Vick's skills and strengths.
