Michael Vick says being in Philly will help Vince Young

If Michael Vick can get his career re-started then surely Vince Young can get his back on track.

It sounds like Vick is embracing the chance he’s going to get to work with Young after the Philadelphia Eagles added the former Tennessee Titan to the mix. Young effectively takes the roster place of Kevin Kolb, although second-year man Mike Kafka will be in position to compete for the No. 2 role.

I think it’s good for Vince,” Vick said this morning, according to CSN Philly. “Get him in here, let him start to compete and get him back to playing football again.

“Vince has done well, he’s just had some tough breaks, but you see a lot of guys in this league who have some inconsistencies in their career, but they’re able to change it. Throughout the duration of his career, I think he’ll be great.”

Young was a two-time Pro Bowl player for the Titans and he’s got skill. He’s also got a chance to work with a couple of coaches in Andy Reid and Marty Mornhinweg who do well with quarterbacks.

“It’s going to be a positive effect,” Vick said. “I think Vince will mature as a player, and I think he’ll get better. (Being in Philadelphia) will help him long-term. So get him in here and make him a better player, and if we ever need him, he’s there for us. If you have a roster full of good quarterbacks, then you have a great chance of winning.”
