Don't expect to see Michael Vick Wildcatting around much in his early practices as an Eagle, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said Sunday.
Mornhinweg said the first priority is teaching Vick the quarterback position in the Eagles' offense. Any extra stuff, any specific package of Vick-related plays designed to take advantage of the former star's hybrid skills, will come after that, Mornhinweg said.
"It's going to be a process," Mornhinweg said, in his first news conference since word broke Thursday that the Eagles would be the team to bring Vick back into the NFL, following a two-year absence while Vick served time for running a dogfighting operation. "One, maybe two things a day after practice. He will be in an intensive learning situation ... That quarterback position is real important for him, and for us, so that's the first thing, and then the other things as they present themselves. Obviously, we're going to do some other things with him."
Mornhinweg praised Vick as "a natural player," one of the top accolades in the Mornhinweg lexicon. He agreed it was a positive sign that in his first practice, Vick realized rookie tight end Eugene Bright was lined up in the wrong spot and attempted to move him.
