07:22 AM ET 11.13 | What's next for Michael Vick? A year after it seemed all but certain that his career with the Eagles was over, [Vick] faces an uncertain future in which the only likely scenario is that he will be playing for another team next year. He is injured, Nick Foles is playing well and winning, and there are only six games remaining in the one-year contract Vick signed in the offseason. During an interview with The Inquirer, Vick said he did not know if he was still the Eagles' No. 1 quarterback. But sources close to the 33-year old have said that even when Vick returns, they expect Foles to remain the starter. "That's not something that I'm thinking about at this point," Vick said Tuesday. "The last thing I want to be is a distraction to this team. I'm just working hard to get myself healthy."

Vick might make it a couple of years as a backup. He can't play a season, but he can come in for a couple of weeks if needed and probably get wins.

He should join Ed Reed on the couch.

I hear Cesar Millan is hiring.

Not if his brother has anything to say about it.

He's done as a starter. Somebody will make the mistake of picking him up as a backup next year, though.

And - let's face it - his brother has plenty to say about it.

He's spent the latter part of his career working to get healthy. He should be better at it by now.

Don't you just love how he comes back every season "brand new" ?

It's a dog-fight to play QB at his age in the NFL

No, Vick is not done, he just needs to land in the right spot. He would be a welcomed addition to he Raiders where he could mentor Prior. Maybe even the Niners where he could work with Colin K. who has had his struggles this year. Maybe even Washington just in case someting happens to RG3, not sure about the Shannahan marriage though? Maybe even in KC as insurance for Alex Smith. But Vick is not through

Vick would not be brought in to SF, DC, or KC out of the owners concern for their image in the community.

Raiders, that would be the logical place. I don't think he believes he is the number 2 in Philly, so for that reason he wouldn't accept the demotion there as well as the cut from $10M a year to about $2M. I think it's probably more likely that he is done.

Unless he needs the money. $2 million is a lot less than $10 million, but it is a lot more than he will make if he is out of football. He may have to swallow his pride and take what he can get.

Vicks done. Too bad, when he's healthy, he has wheels. Problem is, he's broken more than he's not!

November 13, 2013  07:18 PM ET

Nick Foles 2013
16 Touchdowns
0 Interceptions

3-1 record as starting QB

Michael Vick 2013
5 Touchdowns
3 Interceptions

2-4 record as starting QB

...and he's more wheels than passer

I never liked Vick in Atlanta. I softened on him in 2010 - it looked he was finally progressing as a passer.

But he's just plain getting outplayed right now. And that's following two consecutive seasons of mediocre production. It's time to move on.

However, I do wish him well wherever he goes. He was a mercenary who bridged a gap in time.

He's the only one who's not sure.
