PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Hoping to revive his career, Vince Young jumped at an opportunity to play for Andy Reid and learn from Michael Vick.

Wise move.

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.
