Vince Young has signed a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills, according to NFL.com. ESPN is reporting that the deal is worth $2 million with $1 million in incentives.

He was the backup to Michael Vick with the Philadelphia Eagles last season. He worked out with the Bills last week and threw to four receivers.

One of the receivers that he worked with was David Nelson, who said that Young “looked good.”

“We think adding Vince to our roster will create more competition for the backup quarterback position,” Bills general manager Buddy Nix said in the team’s announcement of the deal. “He brings with him some unique physical abilities that most are aware of and that will make the competition interesting. It’s all about improving our team.”

He’s hoping that the new home could be his NFL revival working with offensive coordinator Chan Gailey. Gailey has been historically good at working with mobile quarterbacks.

With the Bills, nothing is guaranteed to him — not even a roster spot. He’s going to earn it, like the others, who sign with them.

During his one season with the Eagles, he went 1-2 as the starter. He went 66-of-114 for 866 yards with four touchdowns to six interceptions.

Prior to signing with the Eagles, he spent five years with the Tennessee Titans after being their first-round draft pick in 2006.
