NFC East Watch: Vick Believes He Can Still Rush for 1,000 Yards

Michael Vick agreed to a restructured deal with the Eagles on Monday



    On Monday morning, the Philadelphia Eagles and Michael Vick agreed on a restructured deal that will presumably keep the veteran quarterback in green and black in 2013, and afford Vick a shot at least at running Chip Kelly’s vaunted, frenetically-paced offense next season. And Vick sounds pretty excited about that.

    In an appearance on ESPN Radio’s “Mike and Mike In The Morning” on Tuesday, Vick pointed out that, once upon a time, he rushed for 1,000 yards. Granted, that was 2006, two years into George W. Bush’s second term. But with Kelly and his offense in town, Vick believes he can do it again.

    In 2006 I ran for 1,000 yards--and it wasn’t hard,” Vick said, per ProFootballTalk. “I feel like I still can do that.”

    Of course, in order to put up a second 1,000-rushing yard season, Vick would have to stay more-or-less healthy. And as anyone who has even casually followed Vick’s career could tell you, that’s a pretty big “if.”
