Answering the question many people had about the new Michael Vick contract, a source close to the situation said late last night that there are no special clauses relating to off-the-field conduct -- just the usual contract boilerplate.

This reflects the extent to which the franchise is comfortable tying its future to Vick, who came to the Eagles two years ago fresh out of federal prison, where he served 18 months for his role in a dogfighting operation.

With Michael Vick's $100 million contract, the Eagles have now spent close to $230 million in the last four weeks on contracts, according to an NFL source.
