Vick Signs With The Eagles

It makes sense. There's only one city in America that is badass enough to handle Michael Vick, and that, sir, is Philly:

Michael Vick is back in the NFL, landing a job with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Vick's agent, Joel Segal, confirmed Thursday that the sides had a deal.

Vick has not played in the NFL since 2006. The former Atlanta Falcons star was convicted in August 2007 of conspiracy and running a dogfighting operation, and was sentenced to 23 months in federal prison. He also was suspended indefinitely by the NFL.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally lifted Vick's suspension on July 27, allowing him to sign with a team.

I would have thought the Redskins or the woefully-inept offense of the Ravens would have been a good fit, but to have Vick back up Donovan McNabb this season makes sense. Unless, perhaps, Vick can take McNabb's job?

Vick has been out of "contact football" for too long to expect him to be ready to play in the pre-season, unless it's in the fourth quarter against stumblebums.
