Report: Birds to bring back Vick

With all of the attention as of late being focused on Donovan McNabb, it’s easy to forget the Eagles have a decision to make regarding one of their other quarterbacks.

And while many believed that Michael Vick would be playing somewhere else in 2010, it appears that may not be the case.

Per a report from Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles plan on bringing Vick back next season.

The former Virginia Tech standout already picked up a $1.5 million roster bonus on March 9 and is scheduled to earn another $3.75 million in 2010. Not a bad chunk of change for a guy who attempted just 13 passes last season.

However, it’s a good investment for a team that has been actively shopping their starting quarterback for the past week. When McNabb ends up leaving the nest, the Eagles will need an insurance policy in place in the event something happens to Kevin Kolb.

The only one who may have a problem with this approach is Vick, as the 29-year-old has made it clear he wants to be a starter somewhere next season.
