New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith said he is in favor of using the Wildcat formation, especially if that means getting his backup, Michael Vick, on the field.
Last season, the Jets used the Wildcat formation 38 times, more than any other NFL team.
“I think it helped us,” Smith said, via the New York Daily News. “It kept us on schedule many times … I think it was pretty successful. Every time he's on the field, he brings that run-pass option.”
Smith completed four of six passes for 33 yards in the team’s preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts. Vick went 3-6 for 17 yards and ran three times for 19 yards.

Neither Smith or Vick gave any indication that the formation might be used at all this season.
"We aren't going to say when it's going to happen," Vick said. "It's just going to happen. That's our little secret, and we keep that amongst us girls. So we are going to make that work."
