Eagles QB will restructure contract to stay with team in 2013.
CBS Sports Jason LaCanfora has tweeted confirmation that Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick has agreed to a change in his contract that will keep him at the club for the 2013 season.
The deal shows that has taken a $5.5m pay reduction to stay with the team and also gives a good indication that his long-term future may still be with the NFC East team.
Vick was tipped as one of the top targets for some teams in this year in a trade, but this is a clear sign that Vick wants to stay in Philly and the new Head Coach Chip Kelly must feel he is the QB to help drive his high speed spread offence.
Despite a poor 2012 season in which he struggled with numerous injuries and poor form, this decision will bring some solidity to the team and now that the QB situation is sorted, Chip Kelly and the rest of the backroom staff can now focus on improving the rest of the team, that went a lowly 4-12 last year.
