05:10 PM ET 01.17 | The future of Michael Vick with the Philadelphia Eagles is as uncertain as ever. Many believed that new head coach Chip Kelly gave Vick a much better chance to stay on with the Eagles as their starting quarterback, but his status is very much up in the air. Vick and his athleticism could be a good fit with Kelly's high-tempo offense, but Vick has a history of injury problems and is due $15.5 million in 2013 with $3 million becoming guaranteed in the near future.

If Michael continues to fumble, that will seal his fate!

Give him the 3 mil, pat him on the butt out the door. Let vick go to a team where he isn't hated

Who the heck knows what Chip will do??

He just took over the team.

I know he was high on Foles back in college...my guess is, they send Vick packing due to the financial part of this and keep working with Nick.

If he wants to spread the field and have a fast QB like his college system, then Vick is his man...If it works or not is the real question because the D is their issue not the offense.

Yeah, but Atlanta doesn't need him!

Vick is done, maybe he sticks around for a year as a back up but if Kelly is going to put in his offense, he needs to find the next Griffin/Wilson/Kaperinck coming out of college. Vick cannot play that role for any more than a few games before being injured again

In my own personal biased opinion, I sincerely hope that Vick stays with the Eagles. Wasn't he holding out for Kelly to see where he landed a coaching gig? As a lifelong Jets fan for over 40 years, (most of the time embarrassingly so :)) I will be forced to completely disown the team, as Woody Johnson is an embarrassment and clown show anyway. As a vile and disgusting human being, I HATE Michael Vick- so if he were to become a Jet, it will be devastating to our already tired and disgruntled fan base.

You are going to love Philadelphia, take it easy on my Giants!!!

I don't think Vick is bad enough to go to the Jets
