Vick was with the Jets during the 2014 season. At one point, he supplanted Smith as the starting quarterback before Smith returned to the role after Vick made three starts.
Vick has appeared in 138 games (112 starts) in his NFL career. He went 1-2 as a starter in 2014. He made 10 appearances last season, completing 52.9 percent of his passes for 604 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.
Michael Vick believes he can still start in NFL

(6/8/15) Free agent quarterback Michael Vick is confident that he can still start in the NFL, if he gets an opportunity.
At a golf tournament in Washington, Vick replied, "Absolutely, yeah I do (think I can start)," per NFL.com.
"I think when you're a veteran, you can do it," he said. "You understand everything that goes on throughout the course of an NFL season, throughout the course of a preseason. So you know how to pace yourself. You've just got to stay training. You've just got to work out. You have to make sure when you go in that you're in tip-top shape and not lagging, because if you do, it's going to show."
Vick was a backup for the Jets last season.
Free agent QB Michael Vick: 'Last year was a wake-up call'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/28/15) Veteran quarterback Michael Vick is a man without a team. He's 34 years old. And the last game he played in the NFL caused him to be benched.
Vick hit rock-bottom with a 7-for-19 effort for the Jets in a loss to Buffalo last November. But he's working to prove that he'd be a worthy addition.
"I still feel like I can help a football team win a couple of games," he told the Virginian-Pilot.
Vick, who has been working out at a facility owned by former Dolphins standout receiver Chris Chambers, questioned his drive after last season. He said he went "back to the drawing board" and sought to gain five pounds while maintaining his speed and quickness against linemen and linebackers who have gained a step on him over the years.
"At the end of the day, football is what I love to do," he said. "When you have passion for it, you have to sacrifice and put the hard work in. ... Sometimes, it takes certain things to wake you up and (last year) was certainly a wake-up call for me."
Michael Vick is still looking for a job at the time of publication, but no matter where he ends up, he will be a backup quarterback with minimal Fantasy value. Vick, 35 in June, played for the Jets in 2014. He had just 604 passing yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions playing behind Geno Smith, and he also added 26 carries for 153 yards. Vick's best days are behind him, and it's unlikely he will earn a starting job again. He should not be drafted in the majority of Fantasy leagues.
