Maclin: Michael Vick Is The First-Team QB

When the Eagles have their first full-team Organized Team Activities since just before the NFL Draft next week, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin offered insight into who will be running with the starters at the quarterback position - Michael Vick.

"Right now, you've got Mike going with the ones and Nick (Foles) sprinkling in some reps here and there," Maclin said on Thursday during his Mother's Day Miracles event at Lincoln Financial Field.

Of course, it's May 10 and the first regular season game is not until September 9. New head coach Chip Kelly has stressed that the quarterback position is an open competition refusing to name a starter.

The Mother's Day Miracles event was hosted by the Jeremy Maclin Foundation. The fifth-year wide receiver honored mothers with surprise gifts and a Mother's Day that they will never forget.

Maclin was fortunate to have the love of two mothers growing up. His biological mother, Cleo, was a single mother of three. During a difficult stretch in his childhood, Maclin moved in with the family of his youth football coach, Jeff Parres, and his wife, Cindy.

"I knew how much this day meant because I saw the struggles my real mom had growing up. I saw it; I witnessed it; I lived it. I always tried to do a little something (for Mother's Day) whether it was something I made in school or something I was able to grab for a few bucks. I always tried to do something. I know this is a very important and special day."
