We’re still a month away from free agency and already the twists and turns concerning Michael Vick have begun.
After numerous reports that the Eagles have all but assured Vick that he will be traded so he has a chance to start somewhere else, now NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi is reporting that the Eagles may keep Vick along with the other two QBs in 2010.
It sounds like a desperate attempt to drive up Vick’s trade value, which may not be close to the conditional fourth-round pick Brett Favre fetched for the Packers two years ago. After little to no interest in Vick last summer (in terms of a contract offer – Philly, Cincy) it’s more difficult than usual for the Eagles to determine just what his market value is.
Heck he may only be able to get a 6th round pick out of another team. So Philly sounds as if they’re hedging their bets and trying to drive up Vick’s asking price by telling a certain media member that they don’t plan to move him, hoping it raises demand and what the Eagles could get in return.
I don’t think anyone is buying it. McNabb is the present and Kolb is the future. That leaves Vick as the trade commodity.
