Rex Ryan: QB battle won't be a distraction


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan told Pro Football Talk that the quarterback competition between Geno Smith and Michael Vick won't be a distraction because "we're not going to let somebody else's agenda get in our way." Ryan presumably referred to the media.

Ryan also reiterated that Smith, who accounted for 18 touchdowns and 25 turnovers as a rookie, will be hard to beat out.


Chip Kelly: Michael Vick has 'tremendous arm skill'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said quarterback Michael Vick has "got tremendous arm skill" and a lot of good football left in him. Vick left Philly for the Jets, signing a one-year deal.

"I don’t know too many guys in the league that have the arm that Mike does," Kelly said. "There’s still days in practice in December when he rips a couple and you’re just like, ‘Whoa.’ He can throw the football. He still has the ability.”

Kelly said Vick is probably not as fast as he was when he entered the league, “but when he first came into the league, he was the fastest guy to ever play the position. A slower version of Michael is a lot faster than maybe every other quarterback in the league, with the exception of one or two."


Andy Reid happy for Michael Vick


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) Chiefs coach Andy Reid, who coached Michael Vick with the Eagles, is happy Vick landed a job with the Jets.

"I think he had a great experience with Chip (Kelly), and he's got an opportunity to finish up his career (with the Jets)," Reid said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings. "He's not getting any younger, but he still can sling that son of a gun like no other. And still can move around. I think he has a passion for the game. I also think he'll be great for the young kid at the Jets."

Reid said Vick being reunited with Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who was an assistant under Reid with the Eagles, will help Vick make the transition to New York. Vick is expected to compete with Geno Smith for the starting job.

"He's back with Marty, which I think is a good thing," Reid said. "Marty knows him and understands him. I think he can still play."


Michael Vick's contract includes $1 million in incentives


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Michael Vick's one-year contract with the Jets includes a $2 million signing bonus, a fully guaranteed $2 million base salary and $1 million in incentives, according to ESPN.com. Vick will receive the full $1 million if he plays 90 percent of the snaps, $900,000 if he plays 80 percent, $550,000 if he plays 70 percent, $300,000 if he plays 60 percent and $100,000 if he plays 50 percent.

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
(3/21/2014) Minutes after announcing the release of Mark Sanchez on Friday, the Jets officially announced the signing of free agent quarterback Michael Vick. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Vick agreed to a one-year, $5 million contract. No further details have been made public.

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.


Michael Vick to visit Jets


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) Free agent quarterback Michael Vick will take his first visit when he checks out the Jets this weekend, reports The Star-Ledger. The report said the team won't hand Vick the starting job if he signs, but "he probably believes he could beat out [Geno] Smith in an open competition."

There's pressure on the Jets to make a move after the Giants went on a free-agent shopping spree, the paper said.


Michael Vick readying to make a decision


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/19/2014) There appear to be "early indications" that free agent quarterback Michael Vick is getting ready to sign, ProFootballTalk.com reports. Vick has watched as QB-needy teams like the Vikings, Jaguars and Buccaneers have signed passers already this spring. That limits his potential suitors but doesn't rule out a return to Philadelphia to back up Nick Foles. 

Michael Vick has taken no visits


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2014) Teams desperately in need of a quarterback "are not beating down Michael Vick's door in free agency," and Vick has taken no visits, reports Yahoo Sports. The website expects Vick to be looking for work after the draft.

"Vick's career may not be over, but it is definitely coming to an end," the report said. "Vick wanted a starting job, but finding employment might be a more reasonable goal."

The Eagles have not shown any interest in re-signing Vick.


Michael Vick still the Jets' top choice


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/13/2014) Michael Vick is still presumed to be the top choice of the Jets according to the New York Post. The report says there is mutual interest between the team and the player. 

Vick 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. 


Report: 49ers a darkhorse contender for Michael Vick


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) The best opportunities for free agent Michael Vick are with the Jets and Raiders, but SI.com's Peter King suggests the 49ers as a darkhorse candidate to land the 33-year-old quarterback.

"Let’s say Vick gets only lukewarm interest to start, or to compete for a starting job," King wrote. "If so, and if the Niners want more than a third-string insurance policy for Colin Kaepernick, Vick might be willing to go to try to win a Super Bowl ring. He turns 34 in June."

Vick is fully expected to leave Philly after five seasons with the Eagles.


Michael Vick could end up with Jets


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) Quarterback Michael Vick could end up with the Jets, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

LaCanfora says Vick will not be back with the Eagles and is exploring other options. Buffalo, Minnesota and maybe even San Francisco will pursue him, but the Jets are where LaCanfora expect him to land.

The report says Vick could mentor Geno Smith and also has a relationship with Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg from their days in Philadelphia.


Jaguars could go after Michael Vick


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/6/2014) The Jaguars could have interest in signing free agent quarterback Michael Vick, reports the NFL Network.

AP campaigns for Michael Vick in Minnesota


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Eagles not interested in bringing Michael Vick back


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2014) The Eagles have no interest in bringing quarterback Michael Vick back as a free-agent this offseason, according to a report from CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

According to the report, the Eagles are planning to go in a different direction to backup Nick Foles. The main concern from the Eagles' perspective appears to be Vick's history of injuries, though he should have plenty of interest from other teams as a free agent. 


Report: Bills could be interested in Michael Vick


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) It would not be a surprise if the Bills "made a run" at free agent quarterback Michael Vick, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Vick would provide stiff competition for EJ Manuel, who battled knee injuries as a rookie.

Vick is not expected to return to the Eagles.


Report: Jets more interested in Michael Vick than Josh McCown


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Conflicting reports continue to emerge about the Jets' level of interest in free agent quarterback Michael Vick. ESPN's Adam Schefter said on the Ross Tucker Podcast that the Jets are more interested in Vick than fellow free agent Josh McCown.

"I think the Jets will be in play," Schefter said. "I definitely think the Jets will have some level of interest in Michael Vick. Definitely."


Michael Vick is 'best bet' for Raiders


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Free agent quarterback Michael Vick is the "best bet" to make the Raiders competitive in 2014, reports the Sacramento Bee.

Vick will never be the dynamic force of his youth, but "the smart move would be to milk him for what he has left during this transitional phase," the report said. "He still has the legs to force defenses to pay attention, and he has a cannon for an arm they must respect."

The paper notes Vick posted an 86.5 passer rating with the Eagles last season before getting hurt. Raiders quarterbacks combined to produce a 73.9 rating.


Raiders give Michael Vick 'best opportunity' to start


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) The Raiders are mulling several veteran options at quarterback, including Michael Vick, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Oakland "looks like the best opportunity for Vick to start quickly," the report said.

Vick is "one of the more attractive names available in a shallow free-agent market at quarterback and should have multiple options," La Canfora wrote, adding that Vick still could end up returning to the Eagles.


Report: Michael Vick could start for five teams


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) In addition to the Jets, soon-to-be free agent Michael Vick could start for the Raiders, Jaguars, Vikings or Buccaneers, reports ESPN.com. Vick "could compete with, and serve as a veteran stopgap for, a rookie draft pick in any of those cities," the report said.  

The website describes Vick as a "quick fix" for Jets coach Rex Ryan, who must get his team to the playoffs in 2014. "No one is as compelling a quick-fix candidate as Vick," the report said.

Jets quarterback Geno Smith finished his rookie year strong but still threw 21 interceptions against 12 touchdowns.


Jets are 'legitimate possible landing spot' for Michael Vick


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) One day after the New York Daily News called it "unlikely" that Michael Vick signs with the Jets, NFL Network reports the Jets "are viewed as a legitimate possible landing spot" for the 33-year-old quarterback. Vick is not expected to return to the Eagles, as they are set with Nick Foles.

The latest report notes Vick's former offensive coordinator, Marty Mornhinweg, runs the Jets' attack and that Vick could help mentor second-year quarterback Geno Smith.


Michael Vick signing with Jets is 'unlikely'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) It's "unlikely" that Eagles free agent quarterback Michael Vick signs with the Jets, reports the New York Daily News. Vick is angling for a starting job, and the Jets are high on Geno Smith.

Jets should have options at quarterback


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/12/2014) The Jets are expected to be in the market for a quarterback to compete with Geno Smith this season, and ESPN speculates Michael Vick, Matt Schaub and Kirk Cousins are three potential veteran options.

For Vick, who is a free agent, there is a familiarity with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg's system when the two were in Philadelphia. Schaub could be cut or traded by the Texans, and he might need a change of scenery after last year's disaster. And Cousins could be someone the Jets target via trade as a young veteran with upside.

Smith is still expected to be the starter this year, but a lot will depend on who is brought in for competition.


Michael Vick viewed as 'very good bridge starter for 2-3 years'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2014) Eagles quarterback Michael Vick lost his starting job in Philadelphia, but an unnamed NFL executive tells NFL.com that Vick will be in demand as a starter this season.

"There are too many teams that are in need of an upgrade for him not to be looked at as a starter," the exec said. "I could see a team signing him, and developing a young guy. Vick could be a very good bridge starter for two to three years."

Vick, who turns 34 in June, stacks up well in a free-agent quarterback class that includes Matt Cassel, Chad Henne, Josh McCown, Josh Freeman, Shaun Hill, Rex Grossman, Kellen Clemens and Matt Flynn. Assuming they're released, Matt Schaub and Mark Sanchez would fill out the group.


Jets and Bucs expected to have interest in Michael Vick


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2014) The Jets and Buccaneers are expected to have some interest in free-agent quarterback Michael Vick, according to ESPN.

Vick will likely be one of the top quarterbacks to hit free agency, and has recently stressed a desire to start next season. Both the Jets and Buccaneers used rookie quarterbacks last year, but could look for a veteran starter in order to let their younger players develop more. 

The soon to be 34-year-old started just six games last season due to injuries. He was replaced by Nick Foles, and wound up being a backup the second half of the year.
