Would Vick's return signal a McNabb exit?

Reports have surfaced this week that the Eagles are reportedly no longer shopping Michael Vick.

Michael Vick is no longer on the market. With the Philadelphia Eagles shopping Donovan McNabb – from the outside it would appear the team has reached the point of no return with its longtime quarterback – it’s no longer shopping Vick, according to Sal Paolantonio of ESPN.

The conclusions you could draw from the report are obvious. If the Eagles do indeed trade McNabb, then it wouldn't make much sense to deal Vick as well. That would leave the team with just Kevin Kolb as the only QB on the roster and would be the only guy ready to start. They could find a old vet and draft someone, but those guys wouldn't know the system and probably wouldn't be ready to step in if something happened.

Vick at least provides knowledge of the system and some veteran insurance. Whatever middling compensation they would get for Vick on the trade market wouldn't be more than the value he'd have as a backup to Kolb.
