If Joel Segal, agent for Michael Vick, knows where his client might be playing this season, Segal wasn't saying so this morning, as he headed into the annual agents' meeting at the NFL Scouting Combine.
"It's one day at a time," Segal said. "Hopefully we'll talk to the Eagles here and see what's up."
Yeah, that would be good.
The Birds are expected to trade Vick, after shepherding the quarterback through his return to the NFL last season. They have to pick up a $1.5 million roster bonus he is due March 5, if he is still an Eagle then. It seems unlikely any team will trade for Vick without knowing for sure the Eagles are paying the bonus; they could just release him.
Officially, the Eagles are still entertaining the idea of keeping Vick, Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb, all of whom will be in the final year of their contract in 2010.
Meanwhile, Vick was in Durham, N.C., today, speaking at New Horizons Academy of Excellence, a school that provides second chances for students that have dropped out or been suspended from other facilities.
The event was part of Vick's tour of speaking engagements about ending dogfighting. He spoke about taking responsibility and not becoming a product of a bad environment.
"You have to be bigger than that,” he said.
