PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Michael Vick is in Philadelphia looking for a second chance and a fresh start with the Eagles.

"I know I've done some terrible things, made a horrible mistake. Now I want to be part of the solution and not the problem," Vick said Friday, referring to his conviction for his role in running a dogfighting ring.

Vick was introduced at a press conference a day after signing a one-year deal with an option for a second year with the Eagles.

Vick was flanked by Eagles coach Andy Reid and mentor Tony Dungy.

The 29-year-old Vick has been out of action since 2006. The former Atlanta Falcons star served 18 months of a 23-month sentence in federal prison.
