Michael Vick signed a contract with the Philadelphia Eagles for 100 million dollars.
But is Michael Vick worth $100 million?
He has started five playoff games in his career and won only two (the last win coming after the 2004 season). Compare that to Brady and Manning who have won 23 playoff games combined along with four Super Bowls. Vick’s career QB rating is 80.2 just behind such immortals as Ken O’Brien and Jeff George.
QB rating does not take into account running ability which is one of Vick’s strongest attributes, but Vick is 31-years-old and his legs are bound to slow down as he ages. Look at Randall Cunningham who Vick is often compared to and is second behind Vick in career rushing yards per game among quarterbacks. Cunningham averaged 42 yards a game rushing before his 30th birthday and less than 15 rushing yards per game in the 65 games after he turned 30.
