NFL Roundup: Vick clarifies starting QB statement, Young out on bond

The SportsXchange

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick told radio station WIP that he was just being honest when he said earlier in the week that new coach Chip Kelly should name a starter before training camp.

Vick is competing for the starting job with Nick Foles. Vick told reporters he wants to know who the starter will be so he does not have to keep getting questions about having to split reps with Foles.

Earlier in the week, Vick told CSN Philly that he wished Kelly would name a starter soon.

Vick told WIP that he has since spoken to Kelly about his comments and Kelly insisted that he continue to answer media questions honestly.

---Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young has been released after spending 27 days in a California jail. Young's family posted 10 percent of the $50,000 bond and he now must appear back in court for a pretrial hearing on June 24.

Young, who was arrested multiple times on a number of charges, is struggling with mental illness and needs professional help, his family told the Detroit Free Press.

The 27-year-old Young was arrested on May 11 after he was accused of breaking into a San Clemente, Calif., home.

He faces at least 11 charges including burglary, attempted burglary and assault on police officers. He also has been charged with three felonies for that incident and another one May 4 when he was accused of stealing candy, water and cigars from a Laguna Hills, Calif., gasoline station.

Young could be sentenced up to 10 years in prison if convicted on those charges.

---Free agent tight end Kellen Winslow received a tryout invitation from the New York Jets, NFL.com reported.

Winslow, who has been battling knee problems, will report to the Jets' minicamp next week. He has 438 career receptions for 4,848 yards with 23 touchdowns, but was limited to just one catch for 12 yards in one game with the New England Patriots last season.

He spent the first five years of his career with the Cleveland Browns before spending three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
