Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick told NFL.com's Dan Hanzus that he will "absolutely" be a starter by Week 1 of next season.

Vick lost his starting job to Nick Foles, who went on to throw for 2,891 yards with 27 touchdowns and only two interceptions and became the league's highest rated passer.

Vick's problem was that he couldn't stay healthy this season, suffering a hamstring injury earlier in the season and then getting replaced by third-stringer Matt Barkley after being ineffective in a Week 8 loss to the New York Giants.

"I don't know," he said. "Who knows? What I am is really excited about the opportunity to play again in 2014 and that's what's important."

Vick, 33, signed a one-year deal before last season and will be a free agent this offseason.
