article imageNFL News and Rumors: Michael Vick to NY Jets?

New York - 2014 isn't a great year for NFL teams looking for a veteran free agent quarterback, but Michael Vick is the exception and several teams from around the league are rumored to have interest in the former Philadelphia Eagles signal caller.
Nick Kostos of Bleacher Report has indicated that the NY Jets would be a great fit for the 33 year-old. New York is likely to release Mark Sanchez, leaving the team with Geno Smith as the lone experienced starter, but with just 12 touchdown passes last season, an upgrade is needed.
Smith will enter the year as the starter, but having a veteran standing in the wings could push the youngster to perform at a higher level, but it also gives the team some insurance, just in case Smith fails to develop in his second year in the league.
Vick would love to start in the NFL, but recent injury concerns and an influx of young talent in the league have cut the number of available jobs. Signing with a team like the NY Jets would allow the former first round draft pick to share his experience with a youngster, but also have a good shot at some good playing time in 2014.
Another team has also been rumored to have interest, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a solid youngster starting and the likelihood of playing much next season would be remote.
