08:01 AM ET 04.13 | Vince Young, the Eagles' backup quarterback last year, sees himself as a starting quarterback -- a notion for which he credits Andy Reid. Young says he asked Reid about returning to the Eagles for next season, but Reid told him he should try to be a starter somewhere. Obviously, that was not going to be the case with the Birds. "I asked Andy, 'could I be part of the team again?' He was like 'I would love for you to stay here but you're not a backup quarterback.'" ... [Young] is waiting for an opportunity with another team after the draft. "We have a couple of teams with interest right now and I'm just sitting back and waiting and letting my agent, Tom Condon, do his work," he said.

Andy playing the nice guy role. Just say it. "Vince, you're not good enough to back up John Beck."

That's not a mirror, Vince. That's a window and you're looking at 32 other players.

Hint to VY, That's just a nice way of Reid saying "We don't want you" or "I'm breaking up with you, but we can still be friends..."

Drew Rosenhaus would have a tough time polishing that turd.

Why does anyone think that VY could start again? He's a lifer at backup.
