Michael Vick says he wants to be a starter

Michael Vick had an interview with Super Bowl Media Center. He does plan to return in 2014 as a starter. “Absolutely,” he said “I can’t see no other way” according to NFL.COM.

Vick mentioned he wouldn’t rule out returning to the Eagles. Since he lost his starting position to Nick Foles, he will try his luck as a free agent for a starting position.

Michael Vick has not played 16 games in a season since 2006.

Why is A.J. Burnett a good fit for philly?

Ruben Amaro Jr. seems to be shopping for free agents this off season. Pitchers? Yes, pitchers! ESPN.com reported that the Phillies and Orioles had shown interest in Burnett this winter.

Burnett, the veteran righthander became a free agent. The Pirates failed to extend his contract of $14.1 million. He made $16.5 million last season.

Burnett was 26-21 with a 3.41 in 61 starts with the Pirates in the last two seasons. He led all National League starters in strikeout rate and groundball rate.

Burnett could be a good fit to the Phillies rotation to breakup the two lefthanders.
