In a story released by ESPN, Vince Young appears to be very interested in backing up Michael Vick while learning under Andy Reid and Marty Mornhinweg.  Per the report:

Young already was eyeing the Philadelphia Eagles as a potential destination, a source told ESPN's NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Some around the league believe the Eagles are considered the "favorite" to land Young, who would back up Michael Vick.

One person who knows Young said he's equally intrigued with the idea of learning from Vick, Eagles coach Andy Reid and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who have done a first-rate job of training quarterbacks.

Andy Reid's and Marty Mornhinweg's street cred for being able to groom quarterbacks is seriously off the charts at this point.  Vince Young is a player with incredible raw talent, and it would certainly be very interesting to see Reid and Mornhinweg take on another reclamation project in Vince Young.  Earlier I posted that I had "a very strong feeling..."
