ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Michael Vick is making plans to get ready for next season despite the NFL’s labor situation.

The Philadelphia Eagles’ Pro Bowl quarterback says he’ll work out with some of his teammates on their own if there’s a lockout. The league and the players’ union agreed Friday on a seven-day extension of the collective bargaining agreement.

Vick was in Atlantic City to receive the Maxwell Award for outstanding professional player. Eagles coach Andy Reid also was to be honored as the outstanding coach.

Vick, who signed a one-year contract with the Eagles after being designated the franchise player, says a long-term deal hasn’t been discussed yet. However, it’s likely that would happen once the new CBA is agreed upon.
