Michael Vick's new one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles is good for both sides of the transaction. Vick gets to work with a head coach that fits his style of play in Chip Kelly and the Eagles get to save money all while playing Vick on a trial basis.
Adam Schefter released the details on Vick's new deal via Twitter a couple of days ago and, needless to say, it looks like the Eagles made out really well.
What interested me about this is that Vick obviously wanted to stay with the Eagles, so he agreed to put a playtime clause in his contract that will pay him more money based on how much he plays. One has to wonder if the Cardinals may consider doing the exact same thing with Kevin Kolb.
Everyone expects the Cardinals to ask Kolb to restructure his deal and he will probably do it. He isn't going to get more money or a guaranteed starting job anywhere else on the open market.
Michael Vick's new contract could be a starting point for Kevin Kolb negotiations
