Vick not sure if DeSean Jackson could holdout

A holdout for Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson?

Quarterback Michael Vick sounded as if that was a possibility.

Jackson wants his contact redone. The Eagles assured him it would be a priority during his exit interview.

Vick has spoken to DJax. On Tuesday he made it sound like he was bracing for a holdout by his teammate.

"Hopefully he'll be here tomorrow," Vick said. "DeSean just has some things to think about, some decisions to make that only he can make. I just don't know. I'm just being realistic about the situation."

Later Vick gathered himself.

"We're rooting for him," Vick said.
"Hopefully he'll be here. And you know, I think he will."

As for his own contract, Vick said he would like to be with the Eagles long term, not just this season.

But he's not going to worry about having a deal in place by Sept. 20th, the deadline for a franchised player to redo his deal this season.

"If I'm supposed to be here, I will be here," Vick said.
