Report: Eagles won't cut Michael Vick
More from ESPN.com
The Eagles may be holding onto Michael Vick through Wednesday's deadline, but it's still unlikely they keep the quarterback for the 2013 season, writes Dan Graziano. Blog
The Inquirer, citing sources close to the situation, reports that while the Eagles aren't expected to bring Vick back at his $15.5 million salary, the team will not release him before Wednesday.
The clause in Vick's contract allows Philadelphia to keep Vick on the roster until March 12 -- the start of free agency -- without having to pay the guaranteed salary, as long as another team picks him up or pays him more than $3 million.
The Eagles could still trade Vick after March 12, or keep him on the roster.
Vick passed for 2,362 yards, 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 10 games last season, his fourth with the Eagles.
