Eagles head coach Andy Reid and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg are being purposely vague about Michael Vick's role in the offense.
Obviously Vick will be Kevin Kolb's backup as long as Kolb stays upright. But the Eagles could have gone out and found half a dozen quarterbacks more suited to that job. He's still here because Reid and Mornhinweg think Vick's unique skills as a runner-thrower can be of value to the Eagles' offense this season.
"I don't know exactly what [my role] is going to be," Vick said after playing a little more than a quarter in last night's final preseason game, a 21-17 loss to the Jets. "I'm just as curious as you. So we'll find out what happens."
