Confirming the Vick deal. With $16.7m average base salary, he's #2 among quarterbacks, behind only Brady ($18.01m) and ahead of Eli ($16.3m)less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet ReplyReuben Frank

Peyton Manning, who recently agreed to a new deal with the Colts, will also earn more than Vick. Regardless, Vick's deal will likely make him the third highest paid player in the NFL - behind only Brady and Peyton.

In and of itself the news of the extension is not surprising. Vick was outrageously good after taking over for the concussed Kevin Kolb. Not that there was any doubt, but by trading Kolb to the Arizona Cardinals the Eagles removed any doubt as to the level of their commitment to Vick.

The contract extension caps an incredible comeback for Vick, who served over a year in federal prison on felony dogfighting charges. By all accounts he's emerged a changed man.

Jeffrey Lurie certainly believes that's the case as he's betting $100 million, reportedly $40 million of which is guaranteed, that Vick is prepared to be the face of the franchise.

Everything about Vick's time here in Philly has been stunning. The announcement of his signing with the Eagles back in 2009 was stunning. His play in place of the injured Kolb was stunning. Andy Reid's decision to go with Vick over Kolb, which was a complete shift in the direction of the organization, was stunning. And now, the money involved in this deal is stunning.

We'll have more on this deal as additional details emerge.

Ed Rendell, Jim Kenney roast Chris Christie for ripping Eagles fans

What a week it's been for Chris Christie. 

After watching his top-seeded Cowboys be picked apart by Aaron Rodgers in the divisional round, and being passed over for a position in Donald Trump's administration, the New Jersey governer called Eagles fans "generally angry, awful people."

He can now add being torched by Former Pennsylvania governer Ed Rendell and Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney to that list. 

"You understand how his approval rating is probably the lowest of any governer in the country," Rendell said. 

(Three fire emojis).

"In retrospect, the governer's had a pretty rough couple years," Kenney said. "His presidential campaign crashed and burned, his bromance with the President-Elect didn't seem to go anywhere. I understand why he may be a little bitter or angry."

Boom. Roasted.

Ugh. Joel Embiid may not be perfect.

He may be buddies with Johnny Manziel, at least according to the former NFL hopeful turned party boy.

It all started when Manziel took to Twitter today to talk about doing a free autograph signing for the people of Texas.

The Twitter rant also included this strange line: "No lie.. I was a [bad word] in 2016 I'm just trying to be a good PERSON again#LostInTheSauce."

Hey, owning it is the first step to recovery, right? 

Also, he knows how to get Twitter's attention:

After doing one Google search, there were reports of the pair hanging over the summer in LA. From Busted Coverage:

[Manziel] was tearing up the Warick LA lounge with his Los Angeles friends at a party that included Jerome Boateng from Bayern Munich, Kendra Wilkinson and Joel Embiid among others.
