Just yesterday the Philadelphia Eagles re-signed Michael Vick to a one-year deal for the 2013 NFL season, according to what YouWager experts were informed. The Virginia native player could make as much as $10 million next season.
The new contract replaces the six-year, $100 million contract Vick signed back in 2011 and he now is scheduled to be a free agent after next season.
Vick released a a statement where he said he was “grateful and proud” to be with Philadelphia.
The 33 year-old player passed for 2,362 yards, 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 10 games last season, his fourth with the Eagles. He was injured and inconsistent in the previous season, eventually giving way to rookie Nick Foles. Vick made it back to start the season finale versus the New York Giants in December since Foles had suffered an injury.
Philadelphia finished 4-12 and in last place in the NFC East. Andy Reid was let go as coach the day after the season ended, and Kelly was hired last month.
Vick seems ready to run the aggressive, up-tempo offense that Kelly is bringing to the Eagles from Oregon.
Nevertheless, Kelly’s offense is predicated on designed runs, which Vick has had difficulties with. Over the course of the last two seasons, the former Atlanta Falcons player has averaged 6.7 yards per rush on scrambles but just 1.7 yards per rush on designed runs.
Back in 2009, Vick was signed by the Eagles, and became the starter in 2010. He led the team to an NFC East title that season and an unforgettable 38-31 December win over New York in which he rallied the team from a 21-point deficit.
During the last NFL season, Vick played in only 10 games, and in the finale versus the Giants, he had a quarterback rating of just 68.4 en route to a 42-7 defeat.
