The New York Jets are interested in bringing former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick to the team, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
The Jets believe that Vick could help starter Geno Smith learn offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg's offense. Vick and Mornhinweg worked together for several years when he held the same post in Philadelphia.
Vick began the 2013 season as the Eagles starter but lost his position to Nick Foles after being sidelined with a hamstring injury. He has told reporters that he plans to be a starter somewhere in 2014, but is willing to return to his role as Foles' backup if he cannot find a situation that would allow him the first-string role.
Based on conversations this week, it’s clear the #Jets are viewed as a legitimate possible landing spot for #Eagles QB Michael Vick.
