Michael Vick Will Not Return to Eagles Next Season

Philadelphia Eagles v Atlanta FalconsMichael Vick’s frequent injuries have turned off the Philadelphia Eagles, who have decided not to re-sign the quarterback who lost the starting job to Nick Foles last season.

The Eagles will seek another backup to Foles, a veteran who will be comfortable in the role, according to cbssports.com.

Vick has said he believes he is a starter, an indirect indication that he wanted out of Philly.

Sources say Vick’s injury history has given Philly pause, and he will explore other options in free agency. The Jets, Raiders and other teams are monitoring Vick. Vick played previously for Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg in Philadelphia.

Vick joined the Eagles in 2009. In 2010 he won the Comeback Player of the Year award after throwing for 21 touchdowns and running for nine to lead Philly to the playoffs.
