Report: Young agrees to one-year deal


BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- On the same day the Eagles traded away their backup quarterback they apparently found his replacement.

Vince Young has agreed to a one-year deal with the Eagles, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.

Young hasn't technically cleared waivers so he can't sign a contract until tomorrow after 4 p.m. But the deal appears to be all but done. 

Reports surfaced a little before the Eagles dealt Kevin Kolb to the Cardinals that the Titans were going to release Young. He is expected to report to training camp at Lehigh at some point tomorrow, according to Breer.
