A person familiar with the team's thinking says the Philadelphia Eagles are strongly considering releasing Michael Vick.
The person said the team might cut Vick no matter what police conclude during their investigation of a shooting that followed the quarterback’s birthday celebration in Virginia Beach, Va., last week.
The Eagles issued a statement Saturday saying “any report or speculation that suggests the Eagles are considering releasing Vick are not true.”
