Eagles place Nick Foles on IR
SVP & Russillo
ESPN NFL reporter Sal Paolantonio talks about the Eagles' future, Philadelphia's interest in Chip Kelly, Cowboys-Redskins, Robert Griffin III's health and more.
The Eagles (4-11) went 1-5 with the 23-year-old Foles as the starter and 3-6 in Vick's nine starts. Vick, in his fourth season with Philadelphia, completed 58.5 percent of his passes for 2,165 yards with 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions before his injury.
Vick told USA Today Sports that he doesn't think his NFL future depends on how the Eagles do Sunday.
"I'm not going out to audition for a job. I'm going out to try and win," Vick told the newspaper. "My play and what I've done for this league and the accolades that I have speak for themselves. The thing I want to do is improve. Whatever happens next year happens. I'm just going to be a guy who, wherever I'm at, I'm going to make the team better."
Vick signed a $100 million contract in 2011 that runs through 2017, but the Eagles won't owe Vick any money if they release him by Feb. 6.
Dixon played in two games for the Indianapolis Colts this season. He spent three seasons in Philadelphia from 2009 to 2011.
