Michael Vick Planning to Working Out with Eagles Teammates

According to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick said he plans to gather his receivers, including running backs, for workouts next week, probably in South Jersey. NFL players are barred from team facilities during the lockout.

“We’ve had a nice offseason, a little too long,” Vick said. “I wish we were in the offseason conditioning [program], but hey, we’ve still got each other, we can do it together.”

Vick said he has no more insight than the rest of us as far as resolving the labor impasse, which yesterday shifted to U.S. Judge Susan Richard Nelson’s courtroom in St. Paul, Minn. “Hopefully, compromises can be made and we’ll be playing football,” Vick said.

Vick said it’s important for Eagles players to not let their focus waver just because of the lockout.

“We all hold ourselves accountable, for being responsible for the success of this organization,” Vick said. “We’re all taking responsibility to step up as leaders and do what’s right for us and the football team.”
