MIKE VICK...FREE AS AN EAGLE!!!




Before prison, Mike Vick became first African–American Quarterback to be chosen with the 1st pick overall by Atlanta in the 2001 NFL Draft. After prison, on August 13th, he was gratefully able to sign a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. Vick will be paid $1.6 million this year, with a chance for the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback to make $5.6 million as part of a 2010 option. According to Philly.com, the decision was driven by coach Andy Reid, who made it clear after the Eagles' 27-25 loss that he felt as though Vick deserved a chance to turn his life around. It's not clear exactly what position he's going to play. Read the story HERE
