ESPN has learned through his agent Joel Segal that former three-time Pro Bowl quarterback Michael Vick has agreed to a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The former No. 1 overall pick in 2001 out of Virginia Tech, Vick has not played in an NFL game since 2006 (ironically against the Eagles) and has spent the last year-and-a-half in federal prison resulting of convictions on dogfighting felonies in his home state of Virginia.

Vick will be up for full reinstatement into the NFL during week six and will compete for the backup job with Kevin Kolb during training camp.
