Young is latest Eagles project
Saturday, July 30, 2011
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Hoping to revive his career, Vince Young jumped at an opportunity to play for Andy Reid and learn from Michael Vick.
Vick sat out two full seasons while serving a prison sentence and was shunned by the rest of the league when he returned. But the Philadelphia Eagles gave Vick a second chance, and Reid and his coaching staff turned the dynamic quarterback into an MVP candidate and Pro Bowl starter.
Can they do the same for Young?
The two-time Pro Bowl pick and former No. 3 overall draft choice is counting on it. One day after he was released by Tennessee, Young signed a one-year deal to be Vick's backup.
