If Kolb is smart, he signs the Franchise tender. He would be guaranteed to make a substantial amount of money in case of a lock out and still be a FA next year.
1) Vick is the one getting franchised
2) Kolb has one year left on his deal
Kolb is a longterm insurance. Vick doesn't have many more years, especially when teams will figure him out in that system, as they always do with QB's unless that QB is legit. Vick is considered a backup who came in and had success. No guarantee he does it again.
All valid points. For the first time in his career Vick showed his prowess as a passer. A career best in completion percentage, passing yards, TD's, and passer rating. He actually looked like an NFL QB and not just a freakish athlete in the backfield. As long as he keeps working he will continue his success.
In his limited starts Kolb is the one that looks like the backup.
