Three's no crowd: QB-stacked Eagles to pay Vick $1.5M roster bonus

The Philadelphia Eagles told Michael Vick's agent, Joel Segal, that they will pick up the quarterback's $1.5 million roster bonus this week, according to a league source.

Vick, who's due the bonus by Wednesday, has said he wants to be a starter next season, but the Eagles likely will not trade him unless another team offers at least a second-round draft pick.

In fact, the Eagles are carrying three quarterbacks who have started in the NFL with success, but the team hasn't attempted to deal any of them. A team source has maintained that Philadelphia expects Vick, starter Donovan McNabb and backup Kevin Kolb all to be in training camp this summer.

Sources from two teams who would be in the market for a quarterback said last month that they don't expect Vick to be dealt until the preseason. That's when his value could be enhanced by strong preseason performances, a full offseason of work with his team and injuries/uncertainty at quarterback on other clubs.

NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi reported last month that the Eagles plan on keeping Vick and even might increase his role in the offense. Vick would be due $5.2 million next season if the Eagles keep him.

Vick didn't see much playing time for Philadelphia last season, his first in the NFL after he missed 2007 and 2008 while serving a federal dogfighting sentence. He finished with 86 passing yards and 95 rushing yards, and he threw for one touchdown and ran for two more.

Vick was the No. 1 overall draft pick by the Atlanta Falcons in 2001 and spent six seasons with the team. He was a three-time Pro Bowl pick during his Falcons tenure.
