Vince Young, Philadelphia Eagles Reportedly Reach Contract Agreement

Albert Breer tweets that quarterback Vince Young is set to join the Philadelphia Eagles.

Vince Young has reached a one-year deal with the Eagles. Will sign it tomorrow.

Young would, of course, be the backup to Michael Vick, and this move would represent a good match of team and player, given that the Eagles just shipped Kevin Kolb to the Cardinals, and Young throws footballs with his arm. And, to be fair, he actually did it pretty well in 2010, averaging eight yards per attempt and only throwing three picks in 156 attempts.

Young won't be a starter in Philadelphia, obviously, and it's interesting to see him enter a situation in which he doesn't control his own destiny in becoming one (short of going all Tonya Harding on Vick, which we obviously don't advise). But Young has been dogged by questions about his leadership abilities and work ethic, and teams who drafted quarterbacks tended not to be terribly interested in him.
