Action News has learned the Philadelphia Eagles will pick up Michael Vick's $1.5 million roster bonus.

The Eagles will now have the option to trade Vick to another team or keep him on the roster for the 2010 season.

After being out of the NFL for two seasons, Vick returned last year and played in 12 games. He threw for 86 yards, rushed for 95, and scored three touchdowns.

How will the quarterback situation between Donovan McNabb, Kevin Kolb, and Michael Vick play out?

Stay tuned to Action News and 6abc.com.

According to the Associated Press, the Carolina Panthers may be considering taking a look at Michael Vick.

The Panthers will likely need to sign or draft a quarterback to go with Matt Moore, who finished the season for them behind center.

While Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick said on an Atlanta radio station last week that he'd like to play for the Panthers, the team never considered him before last season.

Owner Jerry Richardson has shied away from acquiring players with a history of off-field trouble.
