There’s plenty of talk about Donovan McNabb and where he will end up next year (if he does get traded). However, let’s take a look at Michael Vick for a moment and where he will end up next year. It seems a certainty that the Eagles will not be keeping Vick next year. Unless the Birds have something up their sleeve that no one knows about, Vick will be playing somewhere else in the 2010 season.
Vick has said that wherever he plays, that he wants to be a starter and you can’t blame him. He overcame the tarnished reputation he had coming into the season and showed everyone that he’s still capable of making plays on the football field. His numbers this season don’t blow anyone away but he was given limited opportunities. He had his best game in Atlanta where he was given the most opportunities to play. Now that the “trial run” is over, Vick is ready to be a legitimate quarterback again in the NFL and essentially pick up where he left of in 2006.
There are plenty of teams out there who aren’t happy with their quarterback situation and are looking for a new solution. Vick will end up playing for one of these teams. According to Jason La Canfora of NFL.com, teams who may be interested in Vick’s services include Buffalo, St. Louis, Carolina, Oakland and Jacksonville.
The real question is going to be whether or not the Eagles will be able to trade Vick. There will be a window for the Eagles to trade Vick until they will have to release him into free agency as they won’t be picking up his 2010 option. I’d love to see the Eagles be able to get something out of Vick in a trade, even if it’s not a whole lot. Since there seems to be a decent amount of teams interested, I hope the competition to land Vick can benefit the Eagles.
