Vick: Panthers Would Be A Good Fit

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has said that he would be more than willing to return to Philadelphia next season, but he's also maintained that he would prefer to be a starting quarterback.

With that in mind, Vick recently told an Atlanta radio station that if he could choose somewhere other than Philadelphia to play next season, it would be in Carolina.

"If I could play for any team in the league, it would probably be two teams, but if I had to pick one, it would probably be the Carolina Panthers," Vick said, via Charles Chandler of the Charlotte Observer, according to

"Well, you know, it's close to home," Vick continued. "I like the uniforms. You get to play against Atlanta twice a year. (There's) nothing better than playing against your former team, right? So, yeah, that would be a good look, it would be a good look."

Vick acknowledged in the interview that it was difficult to accept a backup role once he felt that he was back up to his original playing level.

"I think and know I can make certain things happen," Vick said. "There (is) nothing like having your own team ... because you dictate everything. So, yeah, it was hard."

Vick is currently the No. 3 quarterback, behind Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb, and Eagles president Joe Banner recently said that all three players could return to the team next season.
