Michael Vick Rumors: Will Eagles Let Him Go Or Selfishly Keep Him?

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 02/06/13 11:28AM EST

Forget the idea of seeing Michael Vick on another team next season -- at least for now. There have been rumors throughout the past few months that link Vick's 2013 season to nearly every team in the NFL except the Philadelphia Eagles. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case.

According to several reports coming out of Philadelphia, the Eagles have no plans to release Michael Vick anytime soon. In fact, they seem content with paying him the $3 million he is due on Wednesday.

So it is still unlikely that the Philadelphia Eagles will keep Michael Vick on their roster to start the 2013 season. By doing so, it would cost them $15.5 toward their salary cap. It is more likely that the Eagles will attempt to get rid of the quarterback via a trade.

This may end up being a smart move for the Eagles, but it could come back to bite them in the butt as well. There may be a few teams interested in entering trade talks with the Eagles for Michael Vick. However, those teams know that Philadelphia is stuck between a rock and a hard place. They must move him and their trade partners know that. In other words, they would be lucky to get a late round draft pick at best.

On the plus side, it is better to get a late round draft pick for Michael Vick than nothing at all. But will the draft pick ultimately be worth the $3 million they are paying to keep him on the roster? We'll leave you to form your own opinion on that.

It will certainly be a fun offseason and we can't wait to see what ultimately happens with Michael Vick in 2013. We believe his likely landing spots will still be the Arizona Cardinals or the Kansas City Chiefs, but we would not be surprised to see a different team go after the quarterback.
