Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick recently stated he is willing to be the backup quarterback. He was quoted saying he loved playing for Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly. That says a lot about Kelly who is finishing up his first regular season leading the Eagles to a winning record. And it says a lot about Vick. A few months ago while he was out recovering from a hamstring injury he said he is a starting quarterback not a back up.

This is a bit of a quandary because Vick would be a formidable backup quarterback. He could be a real asset to the Eagles. The one concern is his propensity for injury. But if he is only needed for a couple of games or not at all at best it may be the best option. On the other hand, maybe Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley is young and could be decent as well. Maybe the Eagles keep him, train him up and use him as trade leverage next year.
