Goodell sent Vick to Eagles?

After telling GQ magazine that he didn't want to come to Philadelphia to be a third-string quarterback following his release from federal prison two years ago, Vick clarified his remarks Thursday.


"The commissioner never told me to sign or not sign with particular teams. Again, I want to make it perfectly clear that this was a decision I made and, as I have said numerous times before, I'm very happy with the way it has worked out for me and my family."



Roger didn't force Vick to sign in Philadelphia. However, I'm sure he persuaded him that supremely athlectic, rocket armed quarterbacks have a history of success with the Eagles. See Randall Cunningham, and Donovan McNabb.

Good move Goodell. Vick has been 10x the player he was as a Falcon.---Although he still doesn't read or react to the blitz well pre-snap. :supimpin:
