PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Eagles have reportedly decided not to bring Michael Vick back in any capacity in 2014. That would likely suit Vick just fine, as he has expressed his desire to start, and Nick Foles has a firm grip on that spot in Philadelphia. Vick is one of the top free agent quarterbacks available in the NFL this year, and at least one star player wants him on his team.

On Wednesday,the NFL Network tweeted a question, asking “Mike Vick would instantly make ____ a playoff contender.”

We can only assume the NFL Network was looking for fan responses, but in this day and age you never know and sure enough, Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson decided to take the time to give his fill-in-the-blank answer.

“[Mike Vick] would [instantly] make the Vikings a playoff team!” Peterson tweeted.

Vick earned the starting job with the Eagles in 2013, and held the job until Foles took over after Vick suffered a hamstring injury. Though Vick was a good soldier in the press and the locker room for the Eagles, he made it clear after the season that he still believes he has what it takes to be a starter.

It wouldn’t be the first time that a mobile, ex-Eagles quarterback would have a career revival with the Vikings. Randall Cunningham had the best statistical season of his career after leaving Philadelphia and going to Minnesota.
