Vick suffered a concussion mid-season and has been benched in favor of rookie QB Nick Foles in what has become a lost season for the team. Vick has played only nine games this season and is set to make $15.5 million next season with $3 million guarantees. The Eagles can avoid incurring a cap hit if they release Vick two days after the Super Bowl.
Vick should be able to draw interest on the free agent market from a quarterback-needy team, given that there aren’t a lot of upgrades available at the position. The Cardinals, Bills and Chiefs are some obvious teams in need of help at quarterback.
