Michael Vick continued to make the rounds yesterday, speaking to FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer on the set of Spike TV's Pros vs. Joes.
But instead of discussing which team he'd like to play for next season, or what uniforms he's fond of, Vick addressed the possibility of returning to the Eagles in the same role he was in last season.
Vick has made it clear that he wants to play and wants to start.
Last season, he never created a distraction by complaining about playing time. But would that change this year if he were brought back in a similar role? Only touching the ball a few times a game?
"If I’m in the same situation, I’ll just have to suck it up and go out and play and listen to what Andy [Reid] wants me to do and understand I’m there to play a certain role to try to help the Eagles win a Super Bowl," he said. "I can’t be a disgruntled employee, because that’s not who I am."
Perhaps that's how Vick really feels. Or perhaps he's realized that the Eagles are publicly doing everything in their power to convince teams that they're seriously considering bringing back all three quarterbacks -- even if it's only to create a better market for his services.
"The Eagles know what I want to do," Vick continued, "but I don’t know if it’ll happen. I’m trying to stay optimistic and believe in the organization. Whatever happens, I’m cool with it. If I’m there, I’m happy; if I move on, I’m happy. I’m just fortunate that I have teams who find me valuable. What more can be done? My film speaks for itself. The Eagles know what I can do, which is why I think they picked up the option."
Vick attempted 13 passes last season and carried the ball 24 times.
If the Birds do bring him back, Vick better get used to answering questions about his playing time and his role because they are sure to follow him around the second he arrives at Lehigh.
