When the Eagles surprisingly signed Michael Vick to a two-year deal, the biggest question was why? What do they have to gain by it? For Vick, it makes sense because he’s going to a stable organization without too much pressure on him to perform so it’s a good chance to rebuild his image. For Andy Reid, he can come out looking like a good guy and sympathetic figure. And from the way he tells it, Philly was considering this for quite some time:
I’m guessing Vick will be able to run the ball and be effective a few plays here and there for them beginning around mid-season. He won’t be a huge difference maker for them though. Now seeing what Vick has to say will be interesting, not to mention seeing all the extra media coverage they get.
