Vick Signs 2 Year Deal With Eagles!

Michael Vick has been given a second chance at a career in the NFL with an unlikely ally, the Philadelphia Eagles, who already have an established quarterback in Donovan McNabb. The logic behind this makes plenty of sense. The Eagles are a well established team with a solid management team, and very experienced coach in Andy Reid who has coached in 5 NFC Championship games and a Super Bowl.

While many would want to stir up controversy between Vick and Donovan McNabb, Vick got in trouble in the first place because lack of solid mentoring. Who better to mentor Vick than arguably the greatest black quarterback ever in Donovan McNabb. McNabb has benefited from a solid upbringing, and while he may have plenty of critics in Philly over the years, his national profile is as solid as any quarterback in the league. McNabb lobbied for this signing and gave his blessing to it, and will do his best to help Vick reestablish his life first and football career second.
