Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will probably spend his last home game with the franchise deactivated and in street clothes.
Vick and Eagles head coach Andy Reid both reportedly will not return to the team next season. Vick spoke with USA Today this week and is not pleased with the way his is finishing up his Eagles tenure.
“This is not how you want to go out,” Vick told USA Today this week. “But it is what it is. Everything that happened, it’s football. Our organization may be headed in a different direction. Whether I’m a part of it or not, I’ve got to accept it.
“I’m just trying to take the best approach, and have a sense of gratitude more than anything. Obviously, I wish things would have been different. It could have been different. But I’ve got to just keep pushing forward.”
Vick is set to earn $15 million in 2013 a salary the next head coach won’t want on his books. The only way Vick remains an Eagle is if someone such as Chip Kelly or another coach enamored with his skill set ends up in Philly.
Either way Vick will have to take a nice pay cut to play in whatever city he ends up in.
