Doggone It! Vick to the Eagles

He's baaaaaack.

He's baaaaaack.

Michael Vick’s agent Joel Segal confirmed tonight that the quarterback has signed a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. The deal’s first year will pay Vick $1.6 million with a $5.6 million option for the second year, as the former Atlanta Falcon begins to work his way out of the proverbial doghouse (pun 100% intended).

Look for a quarterback controversy to erupt in Philadelphia if Donovan McNabb struggles early in the season, especially given the Philly fans’ notorious ambivalence to their veteran quarterback. You have to wonder what’s going through Andy Reid’s head tonight. Will he use Vick strictly as a backup? Will the Eagles experiment with the Wildcat system and install Vick in the backfield? It is at all possible that we see Michael Vick as the starting quarterback in Philadelphia any time in the near future?

These questions and others will be answered throughout 2009 in what’s shaping up to be an extremely interesting – and potentially explosive – NFL season.

In other news, Kent State’s Julian Edelman won himself a Patriots roster spot tonight after the quarterback-turned-receiver unexpectedly morphed into Wes Welker.

Oh, and Tom Brady’s back. And he looks good.
