Vick Signs with the Eagles
Michael Vick has signed with the eagles. He’s got a 2 year deal for 1.6 million dollars.
Andy Reid, Eagles coach, said, “I’m a believer that as long as people go through the right process, they deserve a second chance. He’s got great people on his side; there isn’t a finer person than Tony Dungy. He’s proven he’s on the right track.”
“There won’t be a quarterback controversy,” Reid said. “We have to make sure he gets back in football shape. He comes into a good, stable unit here. Donovan and Michael are very close.”
Donovan added, “I pretty much lobbied to get him here. I believe in second chances and what better place to get a second chance than here with this group of guys. … He’s no threat to me, not for Kolb. We had the opportunity to add another weapon to our offense.”
In a “60 Minutes” interview set to air Sunday, Vick said he feels “some tremendous hurt behind what happened.”
He added that he should have taken “the initiative to stop it all … I didn’t.” Source
As I’ve been saying, he did his time. It’s time to move on. With that said, this is going to be a VERY interesting season.
