Report: Eagles QBs Nick Foles & Michael Vick may not be starters next season

The Philadelphia Inquirer & Daily News is speculating that based on new head coach Chip Kelly's press conference Thursday, the Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback for 2013 "is not likely on the current roster." Kelly was introduced and quickly expressed that nothing is on or off the table as far as personnel is concerned. Quarterback Michael Vick @MikeVick is owed $15.5 million in 2013. Thursday afternoon, Kelly told ESPN that he has not decided what to do with Vick by stating, "I don't have the answer. I know what a talent he is and have marveled of Michael since he was at Virginia Tech."

Fantasy Analysis:

Vick is guaranteed $3 million of his 2013 $15.5 million salary on March 11. It was previously considered a lock that Vick would return to the team next season, but Kelly's hiring changes that. The 32-year-old is coming off an injury-shortened season, is owed tons of money over the next few years, and Kelly may be leaving the door open for a potential change. A read-option offense led by Vick would certainly be a good fit though.

"It was previously considered a lock that Vick would return to the team next season..."

Where in the world do you get your information? Everyone in Philadelphia has known since Halloween Vick wouldn't be coming back. We knew when he first signed his contract a few years ago, if he didn't perform like a top 5 QB, he'd be cut after the 2012 season. He's a below average backup QB due to make franchise QB money. Of course he's going to get cut.

I suggest reading some of the beat writers surrounding the team. This isn't my opinion, this has what has been reported for months.
