Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com is reporting the Michael Vick is scheduled to visit the New York Jets facilities in Florham Park this weekend. It seems that Michael Vick has come to the realization that most teams do not view him as a starting caliber QB anymore. There is no doubt in my mind that Michael Vick is a guy who can come in and win you a few games if, god forbid, something were too happened to the starting QB. Vick has just had too many durability issues throughout his career. Even with Andy Reid teaching him how to be a pocket passer, his game flourishes best when on the move.
This seems to be happening to the New York Jets at the perfect as well. They have been pretty silent in free agency this year with the exception of the Decker deal. A signing of a solid, competent backup, like a Michael Vick, could be a move that is well within the fiscal limitations Idzik has set for this year. After the market has settled and regulated itself, Vick’s asking price cannot be too high. At the least, it will be less than it was at the beginning of free agency. With Vick as a backup to 2nd year QB Geno Smith, Geno knows that if he regresses, there is a more than competent body who can fill in an actually win some games. One would assume that can only push Geno to excel. Also, towards the end of the 2013 season, we saw Geno use his legs more. Hopefully, Michael Vick could be able to show Geno how to use his legs safely. Wishful thinking right?
