Shelved on 11 occasions due to various injuries over the last three campaigns, Philadelphia Eagles star Michael Vick has adhered to head coach Chip Kelly’s new training regimen and already added nine pounds of muscle this offseason.
The 32-year-old Vick, who inked a three-year contract with Philadelphia in February that could be worth $10 million, was listed as a 6-foot, 215 pound quarterback going into 2012.
A four-time Pro Bowl selection, Vick was retained because he’s a seemingly ideal fit for Kelly’s unpredictable and rapid no-huddle offense.
Bad Newz Kennels’ mastermind hasn’t competed in all 16 contests since prior to going to the pen in 2006.
Forced to perform behind a depleted offensive line that couldn’t block a drunken Santa Claus, Vick struggled with the Eagles (4-12) last season and tossed 12 scores, against 10 picks, for 2,362 yards over 10 games.
Hence, the all-time NFL leading rusher for signal-callers should benefit from getting brawnier.
Teaming with the 2010 Associated Press Coach of the Year, Michael Vick will again be adored in the “City of Brotherly Love” this autumn.by
