Eagles | Michael Vick could be roster casualty

Tue, 09 Jul 2013 16:11:54 -0700

In the opinion of writer Geoff Mosher, if Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly believes in Nick Foles and the long-term potential of Matt Barkley, Michael Vick could be cut.

Fantasy Tip: Plus, there's always Dennis Dixon to keep around thanks to his experience in this setup at Oregon. It's why the Eagles' QB situation should be avoided until the late backup stages in your draft. Foles could be a decent second option because he gets the ball out of his hands quickly, a must for Kelly's system. Vick is in more jeopardy than many think.

Eagles | Chip Kelly wants competition at QB

Wed, 17 Apr 2013 05:44:26 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said Tuesday, April 16, following his first practice with the team he is in no rush to name a starting quarterback for the 2013 season. Kelly wants to create competition between QBs Michael Vick, Nick Foles and even Dennis Dixon. "There wasn't one set guy that just went with the ones the entire day," Kelly said. "All those guys got an opportunity to roll through ... It's April 16, so we're not playing until next September. We're going to use the full available time for us to make a full evaluation of what it is. I think it fosters competition. I think those guys love competition. That's why they're in that position, and they know it."

Eagles | Quarterbacks split first team reps at minicamp

Tue, 16 Apr 2013 11:57:21 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB's Michael Vick and Nick Foles both split time taking first team reps at the team's minicamp Tuesday, April 16, according to head coach Chip Kelly. Kelly said that QB Dennis Dixon even got a first team rep.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on how the first team reps are split the rest of the summer as you start to put together your draft board, although it would not be a surprise if the Eagles kept quiet on what their plans were for the position.
