Geno Smith gets every first-team rep


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith took all 16 of the first-team reps Thursday, while Michael Vick got none, reports the New York Post. Until Thursday, Smith has been getting about 75 percent of the first-team snaps.

"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.


Geno Smith gets bulk of first-team reps


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) As expected, the Jets gave quarterback Geno Smith the bulk of the first-team reps Thursday. Smith got 13 and Michael Vick got four, reports the New York Post.

Report: Starting Jets QB job is Geno Smith's to lose


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) The starting Jets quarterback job is second-year quarterback Geno Smith's to lose, the New York Daily News reports. It is believed that the only way Michael Vick will end up starting for Gang Green is if Smith stumbles in training camp.

Vick claims he still feels like a "premiere" quarterback but the team is committed to Smith so long as he earns it in camp. 


Jets ready for QB competition


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) One of the biggest question marks for the Jets this season is who will be the starting quarterback between Michael Vick and Geno Smith, reports ESPN.

So far, it seems like Smith is in the lead. The Jets plan to give him 70 to 75 percent of the first-team practice reps in training camp. 

Vick was mediocre in the spring practices, but the report says it's not a stretch to think he could light it up in the preseason. After all, he has a background in Marty Mornhinweg's offense, so it should be a seamless transition.

Publicly, Vick says he's OK with his role as the mentor/backup, but perhaps that will change if it becomes obvious he's the best man for the job. From the team's perspective, the best that could happen is Smith steps up and makes it an absolute no-brainer.


Jets studs and duds from offseason work


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) The Jets have finished up their minicamp and are off until training camp. With that in mind, the Newark Star-Ledger broke down some studs and duds from all the offseason work.

The studs include receivers Stephen Hill and David Nelson, offensive lineman Oday Aboushi, cornerback Dexter McDougle and safety Calvin Pryor .

The duds were quarterbacks Michael Vick and Matt Simms and offensive lineman Willie Colon.


Geno Smith still ahead of Michael Vick


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) Geno Smith is still saying there's competition for the starting quarterback job with the Jets, but he is still ahead of Michael Vick. According to ESPN, Smith worked with the first-team offense at OTAs on Wednesday while Vick stuck with the second team. And while Smith is preaching competition, Vick said as recently last week that it's not a competition and that he's the backup. 

Michael Vick thinks Geno Smith will start


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) Michael Vick said Thursday that the Jets don't have an "open competition" at quarterback and that Geno Smith is expected to begin the year as the starter

"Going through the competition (in Philadelphia last year), we knew both of us coming in that it was open competition and the best guy was going to win the job," Vick told the New York Daily News. "Pretty much cut and dry. This situation is different. It's kind of unique. Even though it's not an open competition, we're both competing every day."

Vick believes that if he and Smith both have good preseasons then Smith would be the starter.

"It's still tough right now ... I won't lie," Vick added. "Because deep down you always want to be a starter. Hopefully that opportunity will come again one day and I've just got to keep working for it."


Rex Ryan touts Geno Smith but says Michael Vick has a chance


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/15/2014) Speaking on WFAN-AM in New York, Jets coach Rex Ryan said that quarterback Geno Smith would be "hard to beat out" for the starting job in camp this summer. "He knows the offense forward and backwards," Ryan said according to the New York Daily News. "I'm definitely convinced that we can win with Geno Smith."

But Ryan wouldn't end the quarterback battle early, also saying that new quarterback Michael Vick, who the Jets signed this offseason, "definitely has a chance to win the job."


Michael Vick: Geno Smith is the starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) While Jets coach Rex Ryan has said quarterbacks Geno Smith and Michael Vick will compete for the starting job, Vick told The Star-Ledger that Smith is the team's starter.

"Geno's the starting quarterback for that football team," Vick said. "Ultimately our goal is to try to help Geno become the best quarterback that he can be. Myself and [third-stringer Matt Simms] are all trying to put him in a position where he can get better from year one to year two."

Vick's comments come on the heels of offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg saying Smith will get a few more reps with the first team at minicamp. Mornhinweg said, however, that Vick could still win the job.


Jets OC describes Michael Vick as mentor, not starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said quarterback Michael Vick is "invaluable to us" as a mentor to second-year pro Geno Smith and that the team can win with Vick "if something happens."

Mornhinweg also said Smith will take the first-team reps at OTAs, and get a few more reps than Vick.

"I think Michael is invaluable to us, especially right now that we’ve got a man going into his second year at the quarterback position," Mornhinweg said. "Michael’s been there, done that, and has had some great ups and downs.

"If something happens and Mike is going to play, we can win games with Mike at quarterback," Mornhinweg added. "So I think he’s a very valuable man to our football team."


LeSean McCoy: Mike Vick will win QB competition easily


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy said his former teammate, Michael Vick, will easily beat out Geno Smith to be the Jets' quarterback, reports the New York Post.

"He’s going to be the Jets’ starting quarterback," McCoy said of Vick. “He’s way better than Geno Smith. Way better. That’s no contest."


Chris Johnson says Jets will have QB competition


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/21/2014) Newly signed running back Chris Johnson said last week that there will be a competition for the Jets' starting quarterback job between Michael Vick and Geno Smith in training camp this summer. According to Johnson, the battle will begin on even ground. 

"They didn't give me no indication," Johnson said when asked by ESPN Radio who had the inside track. "They said those two will battle it out in camp and may the best man win."

Vick is in his first season with the Jets after bottoming out with the Eagles last year. Smith is entering his second NFL season after starting 16 games for the Jets last year, throwing 12 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.


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.
