Michael Vick was an MVP candidate in 2010, but that doesn’t mean he has proved himself as the franchise quarterback for the Eagles. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Sunday that the Eagles are expected to release the quarterback if he doesn’t lead the team to the playoffs this season.

Schefter explains that the Eagles can release Vick prior to Feb. 6 2013 and not be obligated to pay him any money, nor be faced with a salary cap hit. If he is on the roster past that date, the team reportedly would owe him $3 million of his $16 million salary.

This may come as a surprise in light of the $100-million contract Vick signed last year, but remember that NFL contracts are not guaranteed, and they are often highly complex with teams afforded different options to back out after each season.

Vick has been a turnover machine to start the season. He threw six interceptions and fumbled eight times, losing five of them through the team’s first five games. But the Eagles went 3-2, and I can easily see them reaching the postseason.

Based on how well the team felt rookie Nick Foles looked in the preseason, they probably consider the Arizona product an intriguing option.
