Eagles not interested in keeping Michael Vick as backup QB
Michael Vick will likely be playing somewhere other than Philadelphia for the 2014 season.
The Eagles are going in a different direction with the backup quarterback spot, and are not interested in retaining Vick, sources said. Nick Foles is their starter and they will explore other veterans to help man the position.
Sources say Vick's injury history has given Philly pause, and he will explore other options in free agency. The Jets, Raiders and other teams are monitoring Vick. Vick played previously for Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg in Philadelphia.
Vick joined the Eagles in 2009. In 2010 he won the Comeback Player of the Year award after throwing for 21 touchdowns and running for nine to lead Philly to the playoffs.
