The Philadelphia Eagles are having a rough season as they’re currently 3-9 and sitting on the bottom of the NFC East. It’s no secret that they’ll be cleaning house at the end of the season as they’ve already started by firing defensive coordinator Juan Castillo and defensive line coach Jim Washburn. Rumored to get the boot as well is head coach Andy Reid and quarterback Michael Vick due to his low production and high $100 million contract. One of the big questions is where Vick will end up.

From Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports comes something we’ve likewise heard recently: The #1 place Vick could be bound for is with the Buffalo Bills. Last year, Vick told GQ that he preferred playing for the Bills or the Bengals when he returned to the NFL in 2009. “I think I can say this now, because it’s not going to hurt anybody’s feelings, and it’s the truth. . . . I didn’t want to come to Philadelphia,” Vick said at the time. “Being the third-team quarterback is nothing to smile about. Cincinnati and Buffalo were better options.”
Despite Vick’s high turnover rate this season once he’s released his services are still rumored to be in high demand. Vick is eager to prove that he’s still one of the best quarterbacks out there and to be honest he didn’t really have much to work with in Philly.
Not to let him completely off the hook though, Vick is known for holding onto the ball for too long, unable to avoid contact and quite injury prone. This might make teams leery about picking him up. Though he isn’t guaranteed a starting position there’s still plenty of teams that could definitely use him even if he has to come off the bench.
