Eagles won’t move Michael Vick till the preseason?

One player that has been the source of great talk this offseason already is Eagles QB Mike Vick. There’s plenty of word about where Vick will be in 2010, and if it will be in Philly as a backup, or to some other team as a starter or a player again a play away from being on the field.

Today on NFL.com there is a story about Vick, stating that in terms of a move to trade him from Philly elsewhere, it likely wouldn’t happen till the preseason:

The Philadelphia Eagles haven’t initiated any talks to trade quarterback Michael Vick, and they might not this spring, but that doesn’t preclude them from doing so at some point. Sources from two teams who would be in the market for a quarterback said they don’t expect Vick to be dealt until the preseason. That’s when his value could be enhanced by strong preseason performances, a full offseason of work with his team and injuries/uncertainty at quarterback on other teams. “I don’t think there is enough value in a trade to make the move now,” said an executive with a team that needs help at quarterback. “They don’t have to trade him before the roster bonus is due, and I’d be very surprised if they traded him in March. I expect them to hold on to him until he has more peak value, and that could be in August or September.
