Vick's first practice with the Eagles

It didn't take long for Michael Vick to start practicing with the Eagles. He was out there Saturday for practice and reportedly looked good, taking a few snaps and making some nice throws. These are the first pictures of Vick in an Eagles helmet, though the red jersey makes him look like he's still playing with the Falcons.

Donovan McNabb sure didn't mind having Vick at practice:
Vick worked exclusively at quarterback for this practice, although I would expect him to slowly start working on some special plays where he lines up in the backfield and as a receiver. Word has also come out that Andy Reid has told Kevin Kolb and A.J. Feeley that both of their jobs are safe, although I'm not sure what that really means. The Eagles can't actually keep four quarterbacks, can they?

Finally, to make your Vick practice experience complete, here is some video from ESPN, complete with an update from Sal Pal:
