Vick signs on the dotted line

 According to Andrew Brandt of the National Football Post, the Philadelphia Eagles and Michael Vick have agreed to a six-year  100 million dollar contract with 40 million guaranteed.  Vick signed a two-year, 5.5 million dollar deal in August of 2009, so he gets quite the pay raise. In a little over two years, Michael has gone from a sideshow, wildcat player to the franchise leader. Last season he threw for just over 3,000 yards with 21 touchdown passes.  Vick also rushed for 676 yards and nine touchdowns.  There are high expectations for Vick and the Eagles this season and the contract will hopefully not be an added pressure for the quarterback.  For Eagles’ fans, it has to be one of the better off-seasons in history. Perhaps the only thing left now before the season starts is making a certain wide receiver from Cal happy.

A lot has changed in the last two years for Vick.

  1. This is definitely a risky move on the part of the Eagles. Vick is obviously known as one of the least durable QB’s in the league because of his scrambling ways. He takes hard hits and the bigger those hits are the harder a player falls. Vick isn’t a big guy and you wonder if as he gets older can he handle the punishment he takes on a weekly basis. With that being said, you can’t fault the Eagles for giving him that much money. I mean, Larry Fitzgerald did get $50 million guaranteed. In the end though, as a fan, I’m just happy that Michael Vick is playing at a high level once again and I hope that he can stay healthy in the future. Also, could you take a quick peek at my blog because I would love to know what you think http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2011/08/30/vicktory-for-the-eagles/

  2. If Vick helps bring a Super Bowl trophy in the 2-3 years it will be a success. If not he will go down with legends of the past like Donovan McNabb…..
