Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Michael Vick may still re-sign with the team instead of entering free agency this offseason according to Jason La Canfora.
The NFL insider with CBS Sports tweeted today that although the Raiders would be a possible destination, he could still stay with his current team:
"Fertile market expected for Mike Vick. OAK might be best starting opportunity. PHI return possible, too"
Vick has mentioned that he wants to be a starter in the NFL in 2014 as the 33 year old enters the tail end of his career.
The Oakland Raiders would seem like a logical move for Vick. They could certainly do with help at the quarterback situation and have been interested in a number of veteran signal-callers this offseason. The Raiders also have a lot of cap space and so would be able to afford the former Atlanta Falcon at any price.
However, now La Canfora is reporting that Philadelphia may be a realistic option for Vick despite being dethroned as starting quarterback last season by Nick Foles. It is reported that the quarterback is well liked in Philly and that the organization value his locker room attitude. The Eagles are also a team with a decent amount of cap space and so could probably do a deal that would appeal to Vick.
There is of course, always the possibility that Foles as the presumptive starter could get injured or benched allowing Vick his starting opportunity next season in the city he has played for the last four seasons.
