The Philadelphia Eagles came into the NFL offseason with the goals of improving the team through trades and free agency while negotiating a contract extension with superstar quarterback Michael Vick. It was uncertain if the Eagles could pull off some considerable moves to improve the team on both sides of the football and re-sign Vick for the long term, but they were able to do just that with the signing of the last season’s MVP candidate being the icing on the cake.

Not only were the Philadelphia Eagles able to bring in corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie via trade with the Arizona Cardinals for backup quarterback Kevin Kolb, but they were also able to sign free agents Nnamdi Asomugha, Vince Young, Ronnie Brown and Steve Smith. These moves started a lot of buzz around the NFL as the Philadelphia Eagles went from being a perennial playoff team to a legitimate Super Bowl title contender.

As if adding five Pro Bowlers to their roster on both sides of the football weren’t impressive enough, the Eagles were able to sign quarterback Michael Vick to a six-year deal worth about $100 million dollars. Everyone knew a new contract was coming for Vick and that the Eagles ready to make him a very rich man, but it was somewhat of a surprise that they would roll the dice for six years and $100 million.

Along with the $100 million dollars over the next six years, Michael Vick will have $40 million dollars guaranteed and should feel incredibly accomplished as this is the second $100 million dollar contract that he has signed in his NFL career.
