The Philadelphia Eagles placed their franchise tag on Michael Vick on Tuesday, the team announced.

In addition, the Eagles announced that they have placed the transition tag on kicker David Akers. Under rules of the past collective bargaining agreement, the transition tag allowed teams to match any offer given to the designated player in free agency. It is uncertain if franchise and transition tags will be part of the next CBA. reported last month that the Eagles would franchise Vick. If franchise tags are upheld, the move will tie Vick to Philadelphia for the 2011 season and put the Eagles in a better position to potentially trade Kevin Kolb, who wants to start somewhere next season.

Logan Mankins received the New England Patriots’ franchise tag on Monday. But no players are expected to sign franchise tags while the NFLPA challenges their validity.

Vick made $5.25 million in 2010 but would make an estimated $20 million — the average salary for the five highest-paid quarterbacks in the league — if he is designated the Eagles’ franchise player.

Vick was selected to start the Pro Bowl, his fourth trip to Hawaii in eight seasons. He set career highs in yards passing (3,018), touchdowns passing (21), touchdowns rushing (9), completion percentage (62.6) and passer rating (100.2). The Eagles (10-7) were 8-3 in games he started and finished.
