PHILADELPHIA — Hoping to revive his career, Vince Young jumped at a chance 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.

“Andy Reid, the respect that I have for him,” Young said Saturday when asked what attracted him to Philadelphia. “I met him a long time ago. Some things stand out about him. He’s respected across the league as well as how players talk about him and have his respect as well
