Eagles sign Young and Kibble

The Philadelphia Eagles today announced they have signed G Scott Young to a four-year contract and K Jimmy Kibble.

Scott Young, a 5th round draft choice out of BYU in 2005, put forth a tremendous effort at the NFL Scouting Combine, which included 43 repetitions of 225 pounds on the bench press, two shy of the combine record. The former defensive lineman switched to offense as a senior and earned All-Mountain West Conference honors at left guard, allowing just 3 sacks and receiving BYU's Offensive Lineman of the year award.

The 24-year old Young (6-4, 312) began his career at Dixie State College, where he played for two seasons, earning All-America honors as a sophomore with 15.5 sacks. He transferred to BYU in 2002, recording 13 tackles as a reserve DT before being moved to offensive guard in 2003.

The Salt Lake City, UT, native attended Hillcrest (UT) High School.

Jimmy Kibble (5-10, 204) was selected by the Cologne Centurions in the 2005 NFL Europe draft and went 15-22 in field goal attempts, earning special teams player of the week honors in a Week 7 overtime win vs. the Frankfurt Galaxy.

The 27-year-old, who played for the New York Dragons of the AFL in 2003 and also spent two seasons (2002-03) with the AFL2's Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers, originally signed with the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2000, but was released prior to the start of the regular season.

The Queens, NY, native attended Virginia Tech, where he was a two-time All-Big East selection as a punter.
