Michael Vick to visit New York Jets

Michael Vick wants to be a starting quarterback in the NFL.

It is looking more and more likely that this won't be happening though, and it seems that Vick has come to terms with that himself.

According to, the 33-year old play caller is set to take a visit to the New York Jets this weekend.

"Vick is planning on visiting the Jets, and it could come as early as Friday, a source close to the situation has told," the article says. "This will be Vick's first official visit, and could be his last if all goes well."

If he was to sign a deal with the Jets then Vick would almost certainly become backup to Geno Smith, who will be entering his second season with the side.

As the piece mentioned, Vick has yet to go on a visit since being cut by the Eagles on free agency opening day and interest in his services has been hard to come by from the other 30 franchises.

The trouble with Vick possibly becoming the number two at New York is the fact that they see Smith as a possible franchise QB for the future.

But if Smith runs into trouble and puts in a few poor performances during the season then the Die-Hard Mean Green fans will be calling for the four time Pro-Bowler to come in and take his place, which could have adverse affects for the future considering Vick's age and how vital game time is for Smith given how far at the opposite end of the spectrum he is to his potential new teammate.
