    Default Lock up your dogs in the Philly area--Michael Vick is coming your way

    Quarterback Michael Vick has signed a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, his agent, Joel Segal, confirmed to ESPN.com.

    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.

    But after serving his time and being released from home confinement July 20, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally lifted Vick's suspension, allowing him to sign with a team.

    YES!!! The Eagles. I would've laughed if he went to the Cowboys, but I HATE the Eagles so this works out even better.

    I'm relieved. Must have been an off day for Jerry.

    Jerry was probably still too hungover from celebrating Romo dumping Jessica.

    It's not a bad signing by the Eagles though. Getting Vick is a risk, but one that isn't nearly as great as you might imagine. In fact, football-wise, it's practically zero. The first year of the deal is only for a reported $1.6 million (that's about what the Eagles paid for kicker David Akers(notes) in 2008), which means the Eagles can do whatever they want with Vick -- play him, trade him or cut him -- without much worry. Maybe they'll play him at running back or run him in the Wildcat or sit him on the bench. Everything is on the table. (For what it's worth, Andy Reid said that the Eagles didn't get Vick to sit him on the bench. Of course, 48 hours ago Reid said that the Eagles weren't interested at all in Vick.)


    There may be a brief public backlash, but that angle is overrated. People have short memory spans and PETA doesn't hold as much sway as it likes to think. Philly will take a minor hit in this news cycle and probably another when Vick makes his debut (possibly on October 18 against Oakland).'

    Did Michael Vick ever explain why he thought dog fighting was OK?

    Or did he just apologize and do his time.

    I'm just really curious about what motivates a person to do something like that. Besides money.

    ^ I'm guessing money and no conscious were her motivators.

    this year should be interesting in the NFL. Vick and Favre making headlines.

    I would love to start a thread on the asshole Favre signing on to the Vikings,....but I am not sure how to link an article correctly for the first post. I just know this Vikings fan is NOT impressed!!!
