Michael Vick may be done with the Eagles, but he says he’s nowhere near done as an NFL starting quarterback.
Vick told PhillyMag.com that he’s certain he’ll be starting in the NFL somewhere next season, even though he doesn’t yet know where.
“I’m not a backup. Just being honest, just being candid. I’m a full-fledged starter,” Vick said. “That’s what I’ve got in me, that’s what I provide, that’s what I offer. Whatever happens, wherever I end up, they’re going to get 110 percent. You’re going to get the same thing out of me that you got the last two, three years and that’s 110 percent effort and a guy that’s confident in his abilities to play and win. I want to start. Yeah, I’m a starter. I’ll feel that way until I start to feel like I’m becoming a problem on the team.”
Although Vick will turn 33 in June and had a rocky season before he was replaced by Nick Foles as the Eagles’ starter, he says there’s no doubt in his mind that he has a lot of good years left to contribute somewhere.
“I’ve got prime left, man. I’m just getting started,” Vick said.
The big question is where Vick will start.
