The Philadelphia Eagles will part ways with Michael Vick after deciding to go in another direction with the backup quarterback position, reports CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora.

Vick, 33, spent the last five seasons in Philadelphia and was the starter until being replaced by Nick Foles this season.
