It would be beyond shocking if Andy Reid returned to the Eagles sidelines in 2013. A close second would be a scenario in which quarterback Michael Vick returned for a fifth season in midnight green. According to reports, however, it’s possible that Vick may be dawning a different shade of Green next season.
Ian Rappaport of NFL.com reports that Vick would be interested in joining New York if he were to enter the season atop the team’s depth chart.
From the report:
Sources who have spoken to Michael Vick say the veteran quarterback believes he has another four years left in the NFL and wants to be a starter with whatever team signs him in the event he is released by the Philadelphia Eagles.
Those sources also said Vick would not want to join the New York Jets if Mark Sanchez still is the starter, but he would consider signing with the Jets if he were paid more than Sanchez, making it clear that Vick was the No. 1 quarterback on the depth chart.
Vick, 33, is scheduled to earn $15.5 million next season. It’s a virtual certainty that he won’t earn that type of money when he’s picked up by another team, but should be able to find a starting spot in a quarterback-depleted league.
The report also suggests that Vick could wait to see if any team hires current Oregon head coach Chip Kelly because he believe’s he’d be a fit in Kelly’s fast-paced spread offense.
