NFL: Eagles pick up Vick’s option for 2010
BALTIMORE — Michael Vick says the Philadelphia Eagles exercised their 2010 option on him, meaning the quarterback will receive a $1.5 million roster bonus sometime this week.
That doesn’t necessarily guarantee he’ll return to the Eagles for another season.
Vick was signed as a free agent with Philadelphia before the 2009 season and played sparingly as the backup to Donovan McNabb.
He is due $5.25 million in salary next season. With McNabb and backup Kevin Kolb still in the fold for the Eagles, there has been speculation that the Eagles might try to trade Vick.
He says “the entire organization knows I want to be a starter,” but he appreciates the opportunity the Eagles gave him.
Vick was in Baltimore to receive the Ed Block Courage Award.
