PHILADELPHIA -- Michael Vick said Tuesday that he was unsure whether his No. 1 target, fourth-year wide receiver DeSean Jackson, will report on time to Eagles training camp, scheduled to open Wednesday.
"I spoke to DeSean yesterday, and we're trying to figure out what's going to happen," Vick said. "Hopefully he'll be here tomorrow. DeSean just has to think about it and has some decisions to make that only himself can make."
Jackson is entering the final year of his rookie contract, with a base salary of approximately $560,000 to come. Last season, Jackson made his second Pro Bowl and averaged 22.5 yards per catch, the most of any player with a minimum of 45 catches.
Since he entered the league as a second-round draft choice in 2008 out of California, Jackson leads the NFL in yards per catch (18.3) and punt return yards (1,112).
"Just being realistic about the situation, it's all in what DeSean wants," Vick said. "So we're rooting for him, and hopefully he'll be here, and I think he will."
Jackson's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
The Eagles' other major contract situation involves Vick. The team used the franchise tag on him and will have until Sept. 20 to sign him to a long-term deal. Vick said he would "obviously" like to stay in Philadelphia beyond this season, but he added he is not overly concerned about getting a new deal done before the deadline.
"My focus now is going to be on football," Vick said. "I think everything happens when it's supposed to. I put that totally in the hands of God and this organization to make that happen. My main priority right now is to be the best football player I can be, and let that carry over to the game and let things happen when it's supposed to."
Meanwhile, Kevin Kolb, once groomed as the heir apparent to Donovan McNabb, did not attend the voluntary workout Tuesday because he is on the trading block. It seems unlikely he'll be asked to report to camp this week as the Eagles work on trading him.
Kolb started last season as the No. 1 quarterback until he suffered a concussion, which spurred the path for Vick's emergence. Vick responded with 21 touchdowns, 3,018 passing yards and was voted to the Pro Bowl. It has been rumored that Kolb will be traded to Arizona, and it appears his time with the franchise is over. Vick said Kolb, through text messages, is excited about his future.
"We'll see how it all plays out," Vick said, "but we're rooting for him."
While not specifically addressing Kolb, Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said there is just too much involved for any kind of deal to be completed Tuesday, although he added "it's not for lack of trying."
Teams were allowed to begin trading for players at 10 a.m. ET, and Whisenhunt said that probably wasn't enough time to finish an agreement in one day.
"We're waiting. We've made proposals. We've talked. We've exchanged ideas," he said, "but to get something nailed down and then to think that you're going to get something worked out, whether it's a trade or even just a contract, especially when you have other teams involved, it's going to be difficult."
He declined to confirm reports that Arizona is offering cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie as part of a trade for Kolb.
