Michael Vick has hinted that his time at the Philadelphia Eagles could have come to an end.

Vick, who joined the organization in 2009, has seen his opportunities limited after failing to regain his starting position from Nick Foles following a hamstring injury suffered in October.

Having already expressed a desire to start next season Vick now seems set to make himself available on the veteran free agent market.

Speaking to reporters as he cleaned out his Eagles locker on Monday, Vick seemed resigned to his exit: “I appreciate the fans, I appreciate the organization, I appreciate the relationships and the teammates I’ve been with here. There’s a lot of guys in here I’ll always keep in contact with. They’re my brothers.”

Eagles head coach Chip Kelly however refused to be drawn into discussion on Vick’s future.

Instead he praised the 34 year old quarterback.

“How he handled it (his injury) and helped Nick through the process, it shows you the type of person he is and the type of teammate he is.

“I love Michael Vick. That guy’s awesome.”

So while it seems possible Vick would be welcomed back to Lincoln Financial Field as back up to Foles, the veteran quarterback seems intent on claiming a starting role at a new organization in 2014.
