2014 NFL free agency: Michael Vick could wait until after NFL draft to sign

Veteran quarterback Michael Vick is one of the top signal-callers available on the free agent market, but after some initial interest from the New York Jets, the market for his services appears to have died down.

While there is silence surrounding Vick and his possible suitors, it may be related to the fact that he is being patient in finding a new home and not reflective of a lack of interest.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Vick is in "no rush" to sign with a team and he may be comfortable waiting until after the draft to agree to a deal. The Jets, Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders are all potential landing spots for Vick.

Vick is hoping to land a starting job or at least an opportunity to challenge for the No. 1 spot on a roster, so all of the teams would make sense.

As far as a perfect fit, you need to look no further than the Jets.

Geno Smith had an up-and-down rookie campaign, and the team is looking for a veteran to come in and provide some competition for the job. Vick has familiarity with Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who he worked with during his time with the Philadelphia Eagles, so he could have a leg up in that competition.
