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."


Michael Vick to start Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan announced that quarterback Michael Vick will start Thursday's preseason finale against the Eagles. But according to the New York Daily News, Vick won't play much.

Geno Smith officially named Jets starter at QB


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) The Jets officially named Geno Smith the team's starting quarterback Friday, a move that does not come as much of a surprise given his usage in the preseason.

"I think he's taken off from where he left off [last season]," coach Rex Ryan said after announcing the decision. "I expect great things in the future."

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.


Report: Jets coaches surprised incentive lacking for Michael Vick


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Jets coaches have reportedly been taken aback at the resignation of quarterback Michael Vick to a backup role.

Coaches have "privately expressed disappointment that Vick didn't show more hell-bent on winning the starting job," according to Monday Morning Quarterback. Vick has stated his belief that the job has belonged to Geno Smith from the start. He has also not talked like a guy pushing for playing time.

"The last five years I spent in Philly, I had some great years and played in some great games and went through a lot," Vick said. "Now it's an opportunity for me to refresh myself and take a step back away from the game. I'm kind of relishing the moment I'm in right now. I am not required to have to do a lot. Preserving my body right now is very important to me."

Vick has completed 8 of 15 passes for 87 yards in the preseason. He has been outplayed by both Smith and Matt Simms, though he has the team's only touchdown pass.


Report: Geno Smith will start Week 1 barring injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) As expected, the Jets will go with Geno Smith as their starting quarterback in the regular-season opener, reports ESPN.com. An injury is the only thing that would change the team's plans and enable Michael Vick to start, the website.

Smith will start his third preseason game Friday against the Giants. In the first two games, Smith went 14 of 19 for 131 yards with an interception while adding a rushing touchdown.


Michael Vick not asked to do much Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Vick connected with Clyde Gates for a 17-yard touchdown strike in the fourth quarter. He compiled 70 yards through the air while completing 5 of 9 passes. He added a touchdown and had no interceptions, registering a 117.8 passer rating. He also rushed for 16 yards on two carries.

Michael Vick could get looks in Wildcat


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Even though Michael Vick is second on the Jets depth chart after the team's first preseason game, coach Rex Ryan told the New York Times Saturday he still thinks Vick could have a role on the team beyond just being the backup quarterback.

Ryan acknowledged he could use his Vick in Wildcat or zone-read-heavy packages, even if he ends up losing the fight for the starting job. Vick showed he can still be elusive in his Jets debut Thursday in a preseason win over the Colts, totaling 19 yards on the ground, including 15 on one scamper. 


Michael Vick comes out with second unit in debut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Jets quarterback Michael Vick came off the bench in Thursday's preseason opener against the Colts, appearing in just two series after Geno Smith got the start.

Vick led the team on an 80-yard touchdown drive to open his Jets career, but led the team on a three-and-out the next time. He completed three of six attempts for 17 yards and added a pair of rushes for 19 yards as well.

Vick opened the preseason second in the depth chart, and it is not clear whether he has a chance to get move his way to the starting spot. 


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."

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

"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.

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.

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."
