Vick on return to Philly: 'It would be hard'
From the Philadelphia Daily News:
Michael Vick said playing for the Eagles next year would be "an everyday struggle" and said he "won't be a Wildcat guy."
The comments came in an interview with Bob Costas that aired last night during NBC's pregame show before the Eagles hosted Dallas.
The Eagles signed Vick to a $1.6 million contract for 2009, with a team option for the second year at $5.2 million.
"It would be hard," Vick said of returning to the Eagles, according to excerpts released by NBC. "It would be an everyday struggle. But I would have to take that time to hone my skills and get better. I'm excited about the opportunity I have moving forward whether it's with Philadelphia or another team."
However, after last night's game, Vick told the Associated Press that his focus is on helping the Eagles win a Super Bowl and not where he'll play next year. He declined to speculate about the future, although he said has spoken about it with Tony Dungy, the former Colts coach who is an analyst for NBC and a Vick adviser.
"It's what I thought it would be," Vick told the AP. "I knew I couldn't come in and do anything that would disrupt the rhythm of the offense and what we had going on here. I knew I was going to have to be patient."
