BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) – After a busy day at Lehigh University, on Day 1 of training camp, the Philadelphia Eagles closed up shop by formally announcing a one-year deal for Vince Young.

Young, a two-time Pro Bowl quarterback and a former first-round pick of Tennessee, will replace Kevin Kolb as Michael Vick’s backup.

A standout at Texas, where he went 30-2 and led the Longhorns to a national championship only to have an up-and-down career with the Titans, Young will get a fresh start in Philadelphia, and won’t have to deal with the pressure of performing right off the bat.

Released on Thursday after five years with the Titans, Young became the fourth Pro Bowl player to be acquired by the Eagles in
two days, joining cornerbacks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha, as well as defensive end Jason Babin.
