Jets quarterback Michael Vick unsure of 2015 return to team

Wednesday December 24th, 2014

New York Jets quarterback Michael Vick said he didn’t know if he would return for a second season with the team in 2015, but feels he could play another two years.

The four-time Pro Bowler’s contract expires at the end of this season.

Vick has played in nine games this season, starting three of them, including an upset victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10.

He came on in relief of Geno Smith after Smith threw three interceptions in the first quarter in a 38-3 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 13. Vick hasn’t not played since.

He was asked if he would be in a Jets uniform in 2015.

“I don’t know,” Vick said to the New York Post. "I couldn’t say right now. I’d have to talk to my agent and see what’s the best situation for me. Obviously, this organization has to do what’s best for them."

Vick, who has 604 passing yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions this season, said last week that it would be a "dream come true" to play for the Washington Redskins. Vick is originally from nearby Newport News, Virginia.

Vick, 34, says he feels like he can be a starting quarterback in the NFL and says he can be successful if given the right talent and structure.

"I still feel like I have a lot left in the tank. I can’t say it’s five years worth, but maybe it’s a good solid two," Vick said. "I’m just going to train for that, get ready for that and set my mind-set. If it doesn’t happen and I have to grind my way back up to a starting position, then that’s what it will be."

The Jets conclude the 2014 campaign against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
