Michael Vick wants Eagles starting QB named before training camp
Michael Vick, who's in the running to be the Eagles' quarterback in 2013, wants new coach Chip Kelly to name a starter before training camp begins in late July.
On Wednesday, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick said he wasn't sure where he stood on the team's depth chart. Twenty-four hours later, Vick was still unsure where he stands, but he wants to know soon. The 11th-year player wants new Philadelphia coach Chip Kelly to name a starter before the Eagles kick off training camp on July 26.
"Hopefully, Chip makes a decision before training camp and we won’t have to answer that question, so we can go out there as quarterbacks and just focus on this season and not answer questions about competition every day," Vick said, via CSNPhilly.com.
Could a long, drawn-out competition during training camp lead to tension between him and Nick Foles?
"Yeah, but hopefully we'll have an answer by then," Vick said. "I won't want to continue to answer those questions. I won't continue to answer those questions until Chip makes a decision."
Splitting reps with Foles during OTA's and minicamp hasn't been easy on Vick, "It's tough. I have to continue to be a professional and put my feelings and emotions to the side and just continue to compete," Vick said, via the Philadelphia Inquirer. "But it's hard. I would be lying if I said it wasn't, but that's just what I have to deal with, and I'm going to keep dealing with it until I see otherwise."
If Kelly's going to name a starter before training camp, he's going to have to do it without seeing Foles or Vick practice again. The Eagles' final day of minicamp was Thursday, and they won't practice again until training camp begins in late July.
