Rob Carr/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) —  Michael Vick does not know what his future holds in the NFL, but one thing he knows for sure is that he wants to be a starting quarterback.

“I’m not a backup. Just being honest, just being candid. I’m a full-fledged starter,” Vick said in an interview with Philadelphia Magazine’s Birds 24/7. “That’s what I’ve got in me, that’s what I provide, that’s what I offer. Whatever happens, wherever I end up, they’re going to get 110 percent.”

Vick, who hasn’t played since suffering a concussion on Nov. 11 against the Dallas Cowboys, struggled this season.  In nine games played he committed 14 turnovers.

The Eagles are just 10-12 since signing a $100 million contract in 2011. 

Vick has been medically cleared to return to action but with the Eagles at 4-10 with two games left, head coach Andy Reid has elected to go with rookie Nick Foles at quarterback the rest of the way.

The 32-yard old Vick is due $15.5 million next season but the way things seem headed, he already may have played his last game in Philadelphia.
