Eagles Take on the PR Nightmare – Sign Michael Vick!

Falcons Vick Released Football
ESPN is reporting tonight that Michael Vick has signed a two year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. Vick’s agent has supposedly confirmed it to ESPN. No other media outlet, including the Eagles themselves have confirmed this.
On a side note, the last game that Michael Vick played was against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Here’s the quick take on the signing from ESPN’s Chris Mortensen:

Vick arrived in Philadelphia Tuesday morning and remained there Wednesday evening. The Eagles will hold a news conference on Thursday morning to announce his signing.

Vick was the No. 1 draft pick in 2001, and once the highest-paid player in football. But he has not played since 2006 when his career came tumbling down. He was convicted in August 2007 of conspiracy and running a dogfighting operation, sentenced to 23 months in federal prison and suspended indefinitely by the NFL.

But after serving his time and being released from home confinement July 20, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally lifted Vick’s suspension, allowing him to sign with a team.

So how will Vick fit in the Eagles offense? With Donovan McNabb firmly entrenched as the QB, one would have to think that Vick is going to be more of a “wildcat” type of player. Only time will tell, and it’s now time to see what type of PR nightmare awaits Andy Reid and company in Philly.
