Reader with really freaky looking avator, nadfflictar, brought this up in a Fan Post. The Bengals were another team that offered Michael Vick a deal, tweets Jay Glazier. In fact, Glazier writes that the Bengals were the first team to offer Vick a deal, which was reportedly a two-year deal worth $2.3 million.
Thank you, Philadelphia. The Eagles signed Vick to a one-year deal worth $1.6 million with a team option for 2010 worth $5.2 million.
Ultimately, we wonder, if the decision came down to the chance of starting. While McNabb had his contract reworked, getting a raise rather than an extension, there's always reports that McNabb is done in Philadelphia. So perhaps Vick say a better chance at playing his natural position with the Eagles than the Bengals, where the front office will put Carson Palmer's body on ice to clone him for years to come. Evidence: Prototype Project Jordan.
How are Eagles fans handling the signing?
Thank you, Philadelphia.
