Michael Vick Says He Wants To Be A Starting QB

Michael Vick all but made it official yesterday that he wants to be a starting quarterback in 2014, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports. That isn’t happening with the Eagles. So Vick will hit the free-agent market in March.

This is not stunning news, but when the 2013 Birds broke camp for the last time a little more than 3 weeks ago following their first-round playoff loss to New Orleans, Vick was still keeping the door open a crack, even as teammates visited his locker stall for farewell hugs. It seemed possible that if nobody wanted to sign him as a starter, Vick might be amenable to backing up Nick Foles again, given their strong relationship.

Since then, though, the Eagles have been putting out signals about developing 2013 rookie Matt Barkley. It seems likely Barkley will move up from the fringe No. 3 job to become the principal backup. And Vick thinks there must be a team somewhere that will give him a chance to lead them.
