Michael Vick adjusting to role as backup QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Jets quarterback Michael Vick told WFAN Tuesday that he hopes to return to being a starting quarterback in the NFL one day. For now, he's content adjusting to his role as a backup.

"In my heart and in my mind I’m still a starter," Vick said, per the New York Daily News. "Yeah I’m comfortable in this role. Do I always want to be in this role? No. But if that’s what it calls for I’ve got to make the most of it."

Geno Smith officially named Jets starter at QB


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Smith has been working almost exclusively with the first time offense during training camp and preseason, as Michael Vick hasn't made much of a push to start. Smith made the decision easier with his solid preseason play, completing 69.7 percent of his 33 passes, for 268 yards and a touchdown. He added a rushing touchdown while turning the ball over just once.

Smith started all 16 games as a rookie, completing just 55.8 percent of his passes and finishing with 12 passing touchdowns to 21 interceptions.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"I told [offensive coordinator] Marty (Mornhinweg) and Marty knows I understand that look, we have a certain mission to accomplish and we’ve got to get things going, we’ve got to get on the right track and I understand that. I won’t stand in the way of that," Vick told the paper.

Rex Ryan: QB battle won't be a distraction


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rex Ryan: Starting QB job is wide open


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan said the starting quarterback job will be an open competition between Michael Vick and Geno Smith. "We want that competition," he said. "We'll let it all play out."

Ryan stressed he's seeking competition at every position, not just quarterback. He said Smith will be hard to beat out, but raved about Vick's mobility.

"He's an unusual guy," Ryan said of Vick. "He was unusual when he came out of the league because of how athletic he was but I think he's definitely still … you see all that athleticism he has. He can still run, moves well in the pocket, he's more accurate when throwing from the pocket than he used to be when he came into the league.

"He's got a big arm and can still run so very dangerous. I like the fact that both those guys give us the ability to run zone reads and all those types of things that help your running game. Having a guy, that mobile quarterback, is harder to defend then maybe a guy who's a stationary pocket guy.

"That being said, I'd probably rather defend a mobile quarterback than a Peyton Manning or Tom Brady."


Michael Vick gets one-year deal with Jets


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Vick visited the team earlier in the week and was presumed to be the top choice of the Jets this offseason. He completed 54.6 pct. of his passes with the Eagles last year for 1,215 yards and five touchdowns with three interceptions over six starts.

"He's here in a role where he's going to compete and push Geno Smith to become the very best that he can be," offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said, via the team's Twitter account.


Jets part ways with Mark Sanchez


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) The Jets announced that quarterback Mark Sanchez has been released Friday.

Sanchez, the former first round pick, was set to make $9 million with a $2 million signing bonus later this month had he stayed with the Jets. He underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in February and is recovering from shoulder surgery in October. He did not play a down in 2013.

Jets could keep Mark Sanchez in 2014


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) There's a chance the Jets could keep quarterback Mark Sanchez on a revised deal for 2014, reports Pro Football Talk.

Sanchez isn't expected to return with a $9 million base salary and a $2 million roster bonus due later this month. But the report says there's a possibility Sanchez could come back for lesser money.

The report says the final outcome depends on whether the teams potentially interested in Sanchez find other quarterbacks elsewhere in the early days of free agency.


Ryan proud of Geno Smith, not sure on Mark Sanchez status


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/4/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan said nothing has changed with the future of quarterback Mark Sanchez coming back to the team in 2014, reports the Newark Star-Ledger . He also is excited about the future for Geno Smith.

"We'll just let that play out and see what happens," Ryan said about Sanchez. "But it's nothing I'm going to make a comment on."

Sanchez is in the last year of his contract with the Jets and is set to make $9 million with a $2 million signing bonus later this month if he's still on the team. Because of his $13.1 million cap charge for 2014, he is expected to be cut.

As for Smith, Ryan had nothing but praise for the second-year passer.

"I really like where he left off," he said. "The last month of the season was probably his best. I know he had some rocky spots, to say the least. And so did we as a team. But to finish where he did, I think he was the second-highest rated quarterback at the end of the season. Very few turnovers. he ran the ball effectively as well. So he used his legs, used his arms, cut down on turnovers. I think if he could play that way, we're going to be tough to beat."


Two Mark Sanchez scenarios floated


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) In the unlikely event the Jets want to keep quarterback Mark Sanchez, there are two scenarios that could unfold, reports ESPN.com. Both involve the Jets asking Sanchez to take a big pay cut.

If they try to cut his base salary from $9 million to $1 million, "it would be insulting, a strong indication he'd have no chance to unseat [Geno Smith]," the report said. If the Jets offer $3 million to $5 million with incentives, "it would show they consider him a viable starting option."


Jets not ruling out sequel to Mark Sanchez-Geno Smith battle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) Jets general manager John Idzik said he wouldn't mind seeing Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith battle for the starting quarterback job again this summer, reports the New York Post. The expectation was Sanchez would be released, but Idzik maintained he's still a starting-caliber NFL quarterback.

Sanchez is "making very good progress" on his shoulder rehab, Idzik added. If the Jets are serious about keeping Sanchez, they'd likely ask him to redo his contract.


Geno Smith working out with Weinke


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith plans to work out this offseason with former NFL quarterback Chris Weinke, reports ESPN.

Weinke worked out with Smith last season at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., leading up to the NFL scouting combine. The report says Smith has been working with Weinke to stay sharp and fine-tuning his throwing mechanics. 


Geno Smith to get help, competition this offseason


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/10/2014) The Jets plan to address two areas of need this offseason on offense with receiver and quarterback, reports NFL.com. Receiver is a must, and they also want to bring in competition for quarterback Geno Smith.

The report says it won't be a surprise if the Jets take the best available wide receiver off the board with the 18th overall selection in the NFL Draft. They could also go hard after free agent Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker, who's coming off a career year.

Finding competition for Smith is also a priority, whether that be through the draft or locating a veteran in free agency. Smith is still expected to enter 2014 as the starter, but he needs to improve -- and adding receiver help will definitely help his chances of that happening.


Report: Mark Sanchez had surgery on knee


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2014) Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez underwent arthroscopic knee surgery while recovering from shoulder surgery, ESPN has reported. The rehab for both procedures are going well.

Jets GM works with Geno Smith on offseason incidents


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2014) Jets general manager John Idzik said he has spoken with quarterback Geno Smith about handling the social side of the NFL after two regrettable offseason incidents.

Smith was involved in a verbal altercation with a Virgin America flight attendant after refusing to shut off his cell phone before takeoff, though the airline was the one that issued an apology. Lewd photos of Smith were previously posted on Instagram by an Atlanta woman who claimed to have had an affair with him.

"When you're a quarterback in the NFL and you're a quarterback for a franchise in a big market such as New York, all eyes are on you 24/7," Idzziki told ESPN. "I think Geno is experiencing this first-hand. Obviously, I've kept in close contact with him. This is part of learning how to deal with these things.

"We've addressed them, he's addressed them, so [I have] no real concerns that way. It's just how to deal with your celebrity and the visibility that goes along with that position."
