VIDEO: Chip Kelly and Pat Shurmur on Michael Vick

Michael Vick has signed a re-structured deal to stay with the Philadelphia Eagles next season.

Vick, who was injured and inconsistent last season, eventually giving way to rookie Nick Foles, now has a three-year contract, and will compete with Foles to see who runs new coach Chip Kelly's offense this season.

Vick, who returned to start the season finale vs. the New York Giants in December because Foles was injured, finished the season with 2,362 yards passing, 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. The Eagles finished 4-12 and in last place in the NFC East.

Head Coach Chip Kelly says it's not a bad thing that he has two signalcallers he trusts on the roster.

"I hope so, in case one of them gets hurt between now and tomorrow. There's an open competition. Michael knows that, Nick knows that. Nick knew every step of the way what we were doing, I specifically wanted Nick to be in on the plans. I think both of them have outstanding qualities to be in this league."

Kelly also added that he chose new Defensive Coordinator Billy Davis because he has run both 3-4 and 4-3 schemes in the past, and that the defensive philosophy will be based on the team's personnel at the beginning of the season.
