Tag, Michael Vick is “It”
As expected, the Eagles used their exclusive franchise tag to retain their rights to Michael Vick if there is football next season. I would like to see them work out a 3 year deal before the strike so that there is no remote possibility that they lose out on his services.
I’ll be writing about the priorities from my standpoint when time permits, but wanted to quickly give my input on this.
I like the move but it’s all moot right now because there is no real guarantee that there is a tag in the new bargaining agreement. However, from what I have read and heard this was really their only option.
And frankly, Vick goes from $5 mil to $20 mil. Not too shabby for a guy who is still on probation and only 2 years removed from a prison term, is it?
