Michael Vick, Nick Foles To Compete For Eagles’ Starting Job

USATSI_8129419_154224518_lowresHeading into the NFL off-season, few teams in the league have had more questions surrounding the future of the their franchise than the Philadelphia Eagles.

After an extremely disappointing 4-12 season, the Eagles immediately fired longtime head coach Andy Reid choosing to start fresh with a new leader on the sidelines and potentially a new quarterback under center in Philadelphia. Veteran Michael Vick was put on the hot seat during the regular season due to his inconsistency on the field and an inability to live up to the $100 million dollar deal signed in 2011.

Following Reid’s firing, the Eagles’ front office decided to hire former Oregon Ducks head coach Chip Kelly. The hiring was considered to be one of the best of the off-season in the NFL, but the uncertainty surrounding Vick continued moving forward.

Reportedly, Vick is in the team’s plans for 2013 with the Eagles. Philadelphia has agreed to keep Vick on for one more year for a deal worth $10 million.

Although Vick will be in Philadelphia for at least one more season, Kelly has let it be known that there will be a competition for the starting job under center heading into next season according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com:

Speaking at a press conference Monday, coach Chip Kelly stressed that second-year pro Nick Foles has a shot to start.

“There’s open competition. Both of them are outstanding quarterbacks. Who the starting quarteback is will be decided on the practice field,” Kelly said.

Rookie Nick Foles took over for the injured Vick in Week 11 and never gave up the role as a starter. Even when Vick was finally healthy towards the end of the 2012 campaign, Reid decided to stay with Foles.

The move didn’t result in a drastic change for the Eagles, but it sent a message to Vick that he’s time as a starter in the NFL may have come to an end. Foles and Vick will battle it out for the starting role under Kelly next season with the veteran potentially having the edge with $10 million set to be earned in 2013.
