 Vick not ruling out option of returning to Eagles as back-up though.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has revealed that he expects to be a starter next year but is willing to stay with the franchise if all else fails.

The veteran quarterback turns 34 in June, and despite opening this past season as the starting quarterback for the Eagles, he has since lost that job to Nick Foles after injuring his hamstring against the New York Giants on October 6.

Vick hasn’t played a full season for the franchise since 2009 due to various injuries, but is confident that will not affect his chances of earning a new deal and being recognised as the starting quarterback moving forward.

“I don’t worry about it,” Vick said, according to CSNPhilly.com. “My skill set is still there, my arm is still there, my legs are still there, I’m still a playmaker, that’s evident. I think at some point I’ll be playing somewhere.”

Vick passed for 1,125 yards with five touchdowns and three interceptions in seven games this season, as he looked set for an instrumental part in Chip Kelly’s entertaining set-up.

However, Foles has now passed for 2,891 yards and 27 touchdowns with just two interceptions in 13 games, which has helped the Eagles win the NFC East title and move into the playoffs as he has taken full advantage of the opportunity presented to him.

While Vick insisted that he is merely thinking about how he can help the Eagles get to the Super Bowl this year, it is clear that he is concerned over his long-term future.

Nevertheless, he has admitted that he is willing to act as back-up if the situation is right, although he will want to access his options and interest from other teams in the summer.
