Eagles Risking $3M By Playing QB Michael Vick In Season Finale
The Eagles will have $3 million riding on Michael Vick’s ability to stay healthy Sunday afternoon.
A source confirms that Vick has an injury guarantee of $3 million in his contract. Andrew Brandt of ESPN.com first mentioned the injury guarantee last month.
If Vick suffers an injury Sunday, is knocked out of the game, undergoes rehab, tries to sign with a new team after being released, but fails to pass a physical, the Eagles are on the hook for the $3 million.
Considering the number of hits Vick has taken this season and how poorly the Eagles’ offensive line is playing, the front office is clearly taking a financial risk by putting him on the field Sunday.
