Michael Vick will be a Chip Kelly quarterback after all.
CIRCLE THE DATE
Now that the regular season is over, here's what NFL fans have to look forward to.
FOXSports.com has learned that the Philadelphia Eagles are not parting ways with Vick despite months of rumors to the contrary. The team and Vick worked out a restructured contract on Monday.
Kelly will hold a press conference to discuss the deal at 1 p.m. ET.
Vick, 32, fits Kelly's up-tempo offense. He was guaranteed $3 million next season as part of his $15.5 million base salary before agreeing to a restructured contract.
Vick threw for 2,362 passing yards, 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in his fourth season with the Eagles but was sidelined for six games after suffering a concussion against the Dallas Cowboys on November 11.
Nick Foles was later named Vick's replacement for the rest of the season but missed the Eagles' Week 17 game against the New York Giants after breaking his hand the week before against the Washington Redskins. Vick started at quarterback against the Giants in a 42-7 loss.
Posted 24 Aug 2012CORTLAND, N.Y. -- The Jets recently shared their plan to mix in Antonio Cromartie as an offensive tackle. The athletically gifted cornerback considers himself the second-best tackle on the team, after D'brickashaw Ferguson.
“I think I’d put myself as second,” Cromartie told ESPN First Take today. “I haven’t really played it in the past four or five years. I can put myself as the second with just raw ability and talent going out there, and I think, me pushing and being a more physical guy out there on the outside.”
Rex Ryan said that Comartie has been asking to play tackle for some time now.
"I told him, 'Cro, you're 200 pounds and you cant even remember your kid's names. You're going to be awful at this,'" Ryan quipped. "And he was.
"But still a lot better than Wayne [Hunter] out there," added Ryan.
Cromartie was used at right tackle on one play in Monday's practice, delivering a pancake block on defensive tackle Quinton Coples. The rookie called Cromartie a "significant challenge" after playing against the embattled Hunter. "I mean the guy actually put his hands up and touched me" Coples said. "Big difference!"
Wayne Hunter had no comment.

RENTON, Wash. -- The Seahawks have signed veteran wide receiver Braylon Edwards, adding another experienced pass catcher to the training camp competition for the No. 2 receiver spot.
League sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Edwards agreed to a one-year deal.
Edwards signed his deal with the Seahawks on Tuesday morning and he was expected to be on the practice field later in the day.
The 29-year-old Edwards played in nine games last season for San Francisco. He caught 15 passes for 181 yards and no touchdowns during an injury-plagued year that saw him get released by the 49ers in December. Two seasons ago with the New York Jets, Edwards had 53 catches for 904 yards and seven touchdowns.
Edwards also had a tryout last week for Miami. The Seahawks are seeking a receiver to start opposite Sidney Rice after releasing Mike Williams earlier in July.
Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

QuoteFLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes, who missed a handful of voluntary practice sessions while out of the country on a good-will trip to a U.S. Air Force base in Germany, pulled himself out of practice Thursday because he felt he was being overworked.
Near the end of the two-hour workout, Holmes limped off the field and tossed his helmet, seemingly out of frustration. He spoke to receivers coach Sanjay Lal and also spent time with the trainer. Afterward, Holmes insisted he wasn't injured, but he still seemed bothered.

"I was talking to the coach, letting him understand it was too many reps today," Holmes said. "I've been gone for a while, so I can't be at full tempo like the rest of the guys and where they want us to be at."
Holmes said he was slated for 35 practice reps, but left after 20 or 25. The Jets wrapped up their OTA workouts, with a mandatory minicamp scheduled for next week.
The irony, of course, is that Holmes had to be pulled out of the Jets' final game, in the final minutes of the season-ending loss to the Miami Dolphins. Holmes was frustrated by his lack of involvement in the offense -- he had no receptions -- and complained in the huddle, nearly coming to blows with right tackle Wayne Hunter.
That was the seminal moment of the Jets' well-chronicled season of turmoil, much of which involved Holmes and quarterback Mark Sanchez.
After a tumultuous couple of months, the team is trying to rebuild its chemistry. Holmes took another positive step this week by declaring that he will attend Sanchez's "Jets West" passing camp in the coming weeks at the high school in Mission Viejo, Calif., that the quarterback attended.
Holmes was at "Jets West" in 2010, but skipped last year's camp because he was unsigned at the time. Even though he's not team captain anymore, Holmes feels he needs to be there because he still sees himself as a team leader.
"Being out there is going to give the young guys a sense of security, knowing we have our veteran, we have our leader here with us, who's going to help us and get us on the same page," Holmes said. "I think all of us doing the same thing at the same time will be a great chemistry builder."
Coach Rex Ryan has all but admitted he made a bad decision by making Holmes a captain. In fact, Ryan said he no longer will have team captains.
Holmes is the elder statesman of a young receiving corps, which includes a likely rookie starter, Stephen Hill, so he's trying to show the way.
But he admittedly still isn't in top shape.
"I'm at OTA No. 5," he said. "I've got lot of catching up to do for myself."
