Vick is currently third on the quarterback depth chart and is slated to earn $5.25 million in total salary. That salary would be an exorbitant amount for the Eagles to pay a third-stringer. But if he were to be the backup, Vick’s salary would not be significantly more than what otherNFL backup quarterbacks earn.
This will be interesting as the trade talks with McNabb continue. It is my assumption that the keys are to be promised to Kevin Kolb, but now it looks like there may be competition should Donovan McNabb be dealt.
