That sounds reasonable. I just wonder what's going on in Philly most of the time. They seem to always have clubhouse issues anyway, and I would expect his presence could only make it more interesting as well.

Interesting. Maybe they are already anticipating McNabb's annual injury.

I can't say it's necessarily a bad thing, but I am honestly shocked that any team would be willing to take a chance on him. Though his past should not be the end all be all, his past actions have been questionable, although not quite as bad as his brother.

that is quite a lot to ask for someone that has been out of the league for a couple of years.

The guy deserves a second chance, everyone does. Philly can't be thinking he'll be a real QB with McNabb still in the fold. I agree it would not make sense to ask someone who's been out of the league for a few years to step in and play quarterback. He'll see limited action at QB and provide an extra weapon with his feet. Who knows, maybe he'll return kicks.

I know he served his time, and usually, as a society, we embrace the notion of people getting second chances, but there are many, many occupations where convicted felons do not get another chance at that vocation. I wouldn't mind if the NFL adopted that positon. These are highly coveted jobs, and many qualified people could fill roles admirably. I also know the players union would not agree with the league adopting such a positon.

Very true. As a convicted felon one would lose a lot of their rights. A convicted felon would not be hired as a cop. Thus in some ways felons do not lose the right to a job, just the right to particular jobs. (Vick's job is a QB. He could have easily found other employment somewhere else.)

It's all about the money though. Cracking down on the behavior of the players is something that I believe all leagues should look at regardless of what sport, but that is a different thread altogether.

It's an interesting move, one that could pay off big time for the Eagles. Still, there will be a media circus around the team.

i agree, if vick still has his feet and moves prior to going to the slammer...he could be a real scary asset.

I wouldnt mind this,if the same standard was held for all felons in the NFL.I honestly am sick of all the outrage against Vick and his dogfighting,but when Ray Lewis was on stand for murder there didnt seem to be a huge outrage.Do I disagree with what Vick did?Absolutely.Is it worse than some felonies?Definitely.But if we're gonna get ticked off at this we should get ticked off at every other crime.(Note:this rant not aimed at you Steve because I think you were saying any convicted felon shouldnt be playing in the NFL,but its a just a vent aimed at noone in particular.)

Agreed.And while his accuracy never was amazing,his arm would still provide for some scary scenario's if you line him up in a wildcat formation.Imagine Vick with his old moves,Mcnabb,Brian Westbrook,Desean Jackson,and Kevin Curtis on one side of the ball.It could make for some interesting formations and plays.

I don't see this being done in order to be a backup to McNabb. Vick will most certainly be used for trick plays and Wildcat style offenses. I suppose its possible that after his time off Vick is still better than Kolb and Feeley, I would just be pretty surprised.
