Looking for a new quarterback for next season? Cross Michael Vick off the list.
One of the most intriguing questions of the N.F.L. off-season was settled Monday when the Philadelphia Eagles signed Vick to a restructured contract. The old deal, signed in 2011, would have paid him more than $15 million in 2013, but after the Eagles’ implosion in 2012, when the former coach Andy Reid gave the rookie Nick Foles a chance to start, it seemed nearly certain Vick would not return.
But the new contract, which is technically for three years but will function as a one-year deal that will make Vick a free agent after 2013, will pay him as much as $10 million, according to reports. Until the deal is submitted to the union and the league, it is difficult to know how much of the money Vick is guaranteed to receive and how much will come in incentives he may never achieve.
