The contract Mike Vick signed in 2011 operates, as a practical matter, as a two-year deal with with a year-to-year team option on the remainder. And if Vick doesn’t have a big year in 2012, the Eagles could have an intriguing option come 2013.
Rookie Nick Foles has looked great so far in his debut with the Eagles, completing six of eight passes for 144 yards and two touchdowns.
The first one went for 70 yards, after Foles stepped up in the pocket, rolled to his right, and threw back across his body to Demaris Johnson, who was wide open.
The second was caught by Mardy Gilyard, a 44-yarder hauled in near the goal line. The call on the field accurately was overturned by the replacement officials, giving Foles his second touchdown pass in the third quarter.
