The Associated Press had reported the Eagles were giving strong consideration to releasing embattled quarterback Michael Vick, but ESPN's Adam Schefter posted a statement from the organization on Twitter stating:
"Any report or speculation that suggests the Eagles are considering releasing Vick are not true."
For now, Vick remains on the Philadelphia roster, but the bad vibes surrounding a shooting that took place at Vick's 30th birthday party in Virginia Beach aren't going to go away anytime soon. Of course, he hasn't been charged with a crime, but the Philadelphia front office can't be thrilled with the negative publicity. Vick will be Kevin Kolb's backup as long as he stays on the roster and won't make much of a fantasy impact unless something happens to Kolb.
