We need to just get this one over with at the beginning. I'm sure some of you have dismissed me as crazy just two words into this slideshow. Put down your pitchforks for one minute and let me explain.
Once his contract is voided, Vick is obviously going to get nowhere near the money the Eagles threw at him. But when you look down the list of teams in need of a quarterback, it is noticeably thinner than recent offseasons.
Rookie quarterbacks come cheaper than ever before. Combine that with the facts that Vick has done anything but impress and has a controversial track record off the field, and the Eagles are now in a buyer's market.
Vick knows the offense. That's not a very good reason to justify signing him. He's injury-prone, can't pick up a blitz and has been anything but handy in the red zone. With that being said, those are all reasons that the Eagles could land him in a cost-efficient manner.
Why would we want a guy with such obvious limitations?
Well, what are our options?
Joe Flacco will be back with Baltimore. Do I really need to make an argument against Carson Palmer? Nick Foles is a rookie. Rookies need development, but he's not going to get them to the Super Bowl anytime soon.
If Vick could stay healthy and develop as a pocket passer, he is still dynamic enough to win it all.
