The decision on when Vick will be available to play is expected to be made soon by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. The Eagles are NFL betting odds contenders at the online sportsbook to win the Super Bowl this season.
Football odds tell us that the Eagles are awaiting Goodell’s decision before making their final roster cuts on Saturday. "I don't know when the commissioner will make his decision," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said. "He hasn't told me yet." Goodell could reinstate Vick for any game, including the football odds season opener. It is more likely that he would have to sit out at least the first couple of games in NFL betting odds but anything is possible. Vick was scheduled to play a lot in Thursday’s football odds game against the New York Jets.
The problem for the Eagles as football odds indicate is their backup quarterback situation. They have Kevin Kolb as the primary backup for Donovan McNabb but he hasn’t played much this football odds preseason due to injury. Online betting tells us that they also have A.J. Feeley and Vick as backups. NFL betting odds show that other teams have expressed an interest in Feeley but the Eagles don’t want to let him go until they get the decision on Vick. If Vick is able to play in football odds within a couple of weeks then the Eagles are likely to trade Feeley and keep Kolb and Vick as the backups. Football odds indicate that Feeley has been in this situation before. "It's not frustrating," said Feeley, "It's the nature of playing professional football. I've been in this situation before. I guess you could say from past experiences it's helped me develop the mind-set I have now." Football odds tell us that New England and St. Louis are among the teams interested in Feeley.
Football odds tell us that Michael Vick met with Goodell on Thursday morning in New Jersey and speculation is that Goodell will make a decision within the next day or so. It is expected that Vick will be able to play soon in football odds and that the Eagles will trade Feeley, possibly to New England for a backup tight end. "I see myself as a young guy still with a lot of football left," said Feeley, who is 34 of 44 for 347 yards and a touchdown this preseason in NFL betting odds.
