Michael Vick Signs 2-Year Deal With Philadelphia Eagles
ESPN reports that Michael Vick has signed a two-year deal with the Eagles.
Vick arrived in Philadelphia Tuesday morning and remained there Wednesday evening. The Eagles will hold a news conference on Thursday morning to announce his signing.
Vick was the No. 1 draft pick in 2001, and once the highest-paid player in football. But he has not played since 2006 when his career came tumbling down. He was convicted in August 2007 of conspiracy and running a dogfighting operation, sentenced to 23 months in federal prison and suspended indefinitely by the NFL.
Fox Sports says it’s a one year deal with a second year option. Vick will make $1.6 million in year one, and the Eagles have a second year option for $5.2 million.Click here for reuse options!
