Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to a new one-year contract, according to SB Nation's Bleeding Green Nation. This means that Vick will be staying in Philly with new head coach Chip Kelly and he will not be joining Andy Reid in Kansas City with the Chiefs.
Vick was due a ton of money next year -- almost $17 million. I'm sure the new contract is a little more team-friendly, whatever that is.
I never thought Vick was a very realistic option for the Chiefs. One of the reasons Andy Reid failed in his final year in Philly is because of the quarterback situation. Vick's play didn't do him any favors so it didn't make sense to me that Reid would then go out and try to sign him.
Vick back in Philly should be a lot fun now that Chip Kelly is the head coach. One of the biggest story lines heading into the 2013 season is what that Eagles offense will look like with Kelly. Vick's mobility gives them all kinds of options and I, for one, am excited to see what they do.
But given Vick's play in the last year -- Bleeding Green Nation tracks them all down here -- I'm more excited about the Chiefs defense creating some turnovers when they face Vick and the Eagles next season. (Here are all the Chiefs 2013 opponents and locations.)
