Vince Young will land with the Philadelphia Eagles as a backup to Michael Vick, the NFL Network has reported.
Young, the third overall pick in the 2006 draft, has a one-year deal that will be announced later today.
During his career in Tennessee, Young had a problem dealing with booing. Which might not make Philly the best place for him. Asked about that this morning, Vick replied: “We all don’t like to be booed.”
Young, 28, seemingly is either up or down — he is 30-17 and has gotten two Pro Bowl berths, yet he at times was benched by the Titans’ former coach, Jeff Fisher. Now, he can try to recover from a tumultuous 2010 as a backup with the Eagles, working with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
Young is expected to arrive at training camp in Lehigh tomorrow.
