Mike Vick, speaking exclusively to Les Bowen today, says Nick Foles will be a franchise quarterback someday. And hey, maybe that day is today!
“I think so,” Vick said. “Nick will be a franchise quarterback in the NFL.”
Is there any way Vick stays here in 2014?
“I couldn’t say,” Vick said. “The only thing I can see myself doing is just trying to help our quarterbacks prepare and be the best that they can be. I’m trying to help this organization win every week in the best way I can … As long as there’s a need for quarterbacks, hopefully, I can always be a candidate. That comes through hard work, preparation and taking care of my body. As of right now, I’ve just got to finish the last six games strong with this team and see where we go.”
