Mr. Scot

Eagles keeping Vick (for a year, at least)

11 posts in this topic

PFT reports that the Eagles have restructured his contract to keep him on a one year deal for next season.

Vick won't be getting some of the bonus money he was expecting, and the press release says he'll have to compete for the starting job with Nick Foles (in all likelihood, another contender will be signed too)

Never know which one of these to post to as there are always dual threads, one here and one in NFL

One year deal to see if he can handle that O.

His career is most likely all but over now.

I think Foles no longer has the new car smell.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
