Report: Vince Young Signs With The Eagles


Clark Judge of CBS Sports reports via twitter Vince Young has signed with the Eagles to back-up Michael Vick. Young threw 10 touchdowns and 3 interceptions in 2010. The acquisition of Young gives the Eagles a legitimate back-up option behind Vick.

Young is 31-17 as a starter in his career but with his talent comes his baggage, in 2008 the Tennessee Titans had to call police when Young’s therapist told then head coach Jeff Fisher that Young mentioned suicide several times before driving away from his home with a gun.

If the Eagles are able to rejuvenate Vince Young’s career who knows maybe he will follow the root of former Eagle backup quarterbacks and turn into a future second round pick for the Eagles.

The Eagles were once an organization that shied away from players with baggage issues, I guess after the hell Terrell Owens put them through in 2005 they feel have their masters degree in handling head case players. Perhaps if they had this attitude back in 1998 Randy Moss would have enjoyed a nice long career as an Eagle, or in 1995 Warren Sapp would have been nice in Eagle Green. At any rate, the front office now takes risk on players, and I like it.
