Michael Vick Restructures His Contract To Stay With The Eagles

Michael Vick Restructures His Contract To Stay With The Eagles
Sports

New Yorkers can rejoice as they don’t have to worry about the Philadelphia Eagles being any sort of a threat to the Giants because Michael Vick is officially staying with the team for at least one more season.

Vick was initially pegged to be released due to the $15 million left on his contract, but the Eagles were apparently able to restructure a deal that gives Vick a one-year, $10 million contract instead.

Vick had an absolutely miserable 2012 season, but some believe that he still has it in him to turn it around completely, due to his history of battling back from adversity. His winningest season with the Falcons came after an injury that forced him to miss 11 games.

Yeah right. The guy is done, he hasn’t been the same since he got out of prison, and the primary reason he’s still on the team is because coach Chip Kelly couldn’t find anyone else to take his place.

So let us rejoice in Philadelphia’s misery and take comfort in the fact that the Giants will have at least one team they will surely run over next season.
