Eagles | Teammate thinks Michael Vick will win starting job

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said he believes QB Michael Vick will beat out QB Nick Foles for the starting quarterback job during training camp. "In my opinion, honestly, I don't want to be put on the spot, I know y'all gonna do me like that, but Michael Vick's got a lot of confidence in himself. He's been there, going on 12 years in the NFL, I think he'll get the job," Jackson said. "Nick Foles is a great, great talent coming in from Arizona, actually a Pac-12 guy. He has the hype, he has the skills as well too. Going into camp, I think Michael Vick will probably be the starter, but we still don't know. I think [head coach Chip Kelly's] gonna keep everybody honest and keep everybody open."

Fantasy Tip: It does not appear like Vick or Foles have a clear advantage in the competition for the starting quarterback job. Chip Kelly likely will name the starter at some point during the preseason. Whichever one wins the quarterback job should not be seen as more than a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback at this point.
