PHILADELPHIA (NFL/Alper) – A meeting with Robert Griffin III and rumored interest in Ryan Tannehill and Peyton Manning have raised some suspicion that the Eagles are in the industry for a new starting quarterback.
In a roundtable session with reporters on Thursday, Common manager Howie Roseman addressed that as well as the related subject of their satisfaction with their existing quarterback. According to Roseman, there’s no change on the horizon beneath center.
“We have so a lot self-confidence in Michael Vick leading our team,” Roseman said, through the team’s site. “The way that he works and the determination he has, we’re all in with Michael. Michael is nevertheless a young quarterback. He looks excellent to me. He’s healthful and he’s determined. We feel extremely fortunate to have him as our franchise quarterback.”
This isn’t the first time that we’ve heard the Eagles say that Vick is the only quarterback they want to lead them in 2012. Given what it would expense to move up to the best of the draft and the lack of another viable beginning selection on the roster, it doesn’t actually make significantly sense for them to say something else. Whether or not that indicates they ignore the position through the draft is a different query, even so.
It wouldn’t be surprising at all to see the Eagles take a quarterback they assume can create over the subsequent year or two. Mike Kafka and Trent Edwards aren’t players locked into roster spots, so there’s room for a young quarterback in Philly.
