Quick fantasy outlook: When Chip Kelly was hired as the Eagles new head coach, most assumed Kelly would either keep Michael Vick and build around him, or part ways with Vick and let Nick Foles and a rookie battle for snaps. As it turns out, Kelly opted for all of the above. Vick helped Kelly's decision by restructuring his contract (Vick is now playing on a one-year, $7.5mm deal) and has said all the right things about Kelly, the new fast paced offense, and the opportunity to right everything that went wrong in 2012 that resulted in a 4-12 season. Athletically, even at 33 years old, Vick remains one of the league's poster boys - he even beat LeSean McCoy in a sprint at an early preseason get together. The question is whether Vick is a good fit for Kelly's up tempo offense, and whether Vick can regain the sharp decision-making that defined his MVP caliber 2010 season. While it's impossible to know whether Kelly and his offensive coaches are willing to commit to Vick for the entire season, the decision to keep him for $7.5mm argues in the affirmative. In addition to learning a new offense, Vick's fates will be tied to whether the Eagles offensive line can bounce back from an abysmal 2012. The return of LT Jason Peters will help, but it's going to take more than one player. Offensively, Vick will see a lot of familiar faces in the huddle, including LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson. There may be changes in the frequency of formations, as the team spent big money on H-Back James Casey and a high draft pick on TE Zach Ertz. Time will tell whether Vick's future is in Philadelphia, but for now he's won the starting job after a stellar preseason.
