Michael Vick could join Jets

Michael Vick would appear likely to leave the Philadelphia Eagles in time for the new NFL season as he bids to reclaim his position as a first-choice quarterback, and the New York Jets are a ‘legitimate’ possibility.

Vick was sidelined somewhat last in 2013/14 after the emergence of Nick Foles and does not seem content with staying in Philly as the back-up QB for the Eagles. The Jets are likely to be looking for a staring signal caller, and Vick could be that guy.

Ian Rapport of tweeted: “Based on conversations this week, it’s clear the #Jets are viewed as a legitimate possible landing spot for #Eagles QB Michael Vick.”

The Jets are expected to release Mark Sanchez, fifth overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft, after he was displaced last season, while his replacement Geno Smith is not deemed fully capable just yet of sustaining a full season on his own.

Vick then could provide the Jets with the short-term option they need at QB although, at the age of 33, his fitness is something that could pose a problem for Rex Ryan. And, on the flip side, the Jets may not be prepared to guarantee Vick that starting spot that he craves.

Along with the Jets, Vick has also been linked with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
