Michael Vick Profile
Some of the Philadelphia Eagles players voiced an opinion that the quarterback job is Michael Vick's to lose.
Coach Chip Kelly wasn't ready to make the kind of statement. Kelly said there's still an open competition between all five quarterbacks currently on the roster, which includes Vick and Nick Foles.
Kelly said the first-team reps have been divided up close to 50 percent for each player.
"I mean, it could have been 48 to 52 [percent], but we'll count them up," Kelly told reporters, via CSNPhilly.com. "Again, it's May 13. We're just trying to get reps off and trying to get film and look at it. To your original question, ‘What would I make of it?' It's May 13 and we've got a long ways to go before we ever set a depth chart or do anything like that."
Also in the mix for the quarterback spot are rookie Matt Barkley and former Oregon star Dennis Dixon.
It's clear Kelly has options before being forced to make a final decision by the end of training camp. And that's still a long way's away.
