BETHLEHEM, Pa. (CBS) - Today was the first day the Eagles’ free agents could practice with the team during training camp at Lehigh University.

Among the new faces at practice was quarterback Vince Young.  Eagles’ head coach Andy Reid says he liked what he saw from his new backup signal caller.

“I wanted him to just get in and get used to it,” Reid said afterward.  “He kept jumping in there and taking a few more (snaps).  I welcomed that.  He’s excited to be here and he has a great attitude for it.”

Young and the rest of the Eagles’ free agents had to wait for the ratification of the league’s new collective bargaining agreement before taking part in workouts.
