Eagles release statement regarding Michael Vick

The Philadelphia Eagles were the only team in the NFL that was known to be willing to take a risk on Michael Vick nearly a year ago.

Now, the Eagles might have some egg on their face ( at least it's not cake) depending on what facts come out of the shooting incident outside a club Thursday night in Virginia during a celebration of Vick’s 30th birthday party. The shooting victim was Quanis Phillips and the shooting allegedly happened after Phillips threatened to put birthday cake in Vick’s face or vice versa.

At any rate, the Eagles want to get to the bottom of this and team released a statement:

“We are aware of the incident that occurred in Virginia early this morning and are in the process of gathering all of the facts. Until then, we will not have any comment on this matter.”

When the Eagles signed Vick it was with a zero tolerance policy for off-field screw-ups. It will be interesting to see how this one goes down.
