Eagles Pursue Michael Vick?
by Bob Cunningham (Columnist) Written on August 10, 2009
Today, the Philadelphia Eagles officially signed on their coaching intern, former Arena League quarterback Matt Nagy, to give the Eagles a third quarterback with Kolb being ruled out for the preseason opener this Thursday.
The Eagles released wide receiver Brandon Robinson to make room for Nagy, who will probably be cut and go back to being a coaching intern after the game, and Robinson will most likely re-join the team at that point.
The rumor mill went crazy today, as everyone knew it would the first time a starting or backup quarterback went down with an injury.
The "Mike Vick to Philly" rumors started swirling and may not stop until Kolb is officially back from his knee injury.
Jeff Lurie said during his "State of the Team" address last weekend that Vick "deserves a second chance," but that it will not be with Philadelphia.
That, of course, won't end the rumors, as it's coming out now that some teams who have publicly said no to Vick, are privately looking into the opportunity to bring in the former face of the entire National Football League.
I'm a personal believer that Vick deserves another shot, and I also believe that if the Eagles brought him in, he could be a weapon. However, I do not believe for a second that Mike Vick will ever be a Philadelphia Eagle.
