Michael Vick has signed a two-year deal with the Eagles his agent Joe Segal told ESPN.com.
Details of the deal have not yet been announced.
In an upcoming interview with "60 Minutes" set to air Sunday, Vick said he accepts blame for not stopping an illegal dogfighting ring that he bankrolled.
Vick tells CBS Sports anchor James Brown that he feels "some tremendous hurt behind what happened." He adds that "I should have took the initiative to stop it all ... I didn't - I didn't step up. I wasn't leader." Brown asks the former Falcons quarterback if he was more concerned about his playing career or the dogs he hurt, and Vick replies, "Football don't even matter."
Vick also discusses his time in prison and admits he cried at night in his cell.
