Michael Vick EAGLES BACKUP QB
Vick, who served 19 months in prison for running a dogfighting ring, played sparingly in 2009 after missing two seasons
Dan Patrick: Can you play the same backup role with the Eagles next year?
Michael Vick: It'd be a tough decision to make. I want to be a starter. If I had to [stay], then I would, but if another opportunity [to start] presented itself, that would be even better.
DP: Where do you rank right now among starting quarterbacks in the NFL?
MV: To be honest and not trying to sound arrogant, I still feel like I'm among the top 10. I'm confident in my skills. I'll go to the grave saying that.
DP: When you were in prison, were you a celebrity or a target?
MV: More of a celebrity. A lot of guys were kind of starstruck when I came in. For the most part I was treated fair. I had altercations, which is not out of the norm in prison. Because you've got 560 guys together every day, there are going to be conflicts.
DP: Did you sign autographs?
