Report: Eagles QB Michael Vick not willing to restructure contract
Although it is not a guarantee that he will be back with the team, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick said he will not restructure his current deal, reports the Philadelphia Inquirier.
Vick is scheduled to start the season finale against the New York Giants on Sunday and it is possible that Vick my play his final game with the team.
Vick is under contract until 2015 and is due $15.5 million in base salary for next season. The team must decide what to do with Vick by Feb. 6. If the Eagles release him before that date, they won’t have to pay a $3 million bonus. The team could also trade him or re-work his current deal.
“I have to just sit back and think about what has transpired and look at the situation as a whole,” Vick said when asked if he would like to return to the team. “Of course, you would like to come back and play. I love the organization and I love what they’ve done for me. … But if not, it’s been wonderful and I understand the nature of this business. At some point, we all got to move on.”
Vick, 32, has passed for 2,165 yards, 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions this season. Vick has not played since suffering a concussion on Nov. 12.
