Free-agent QB Michael Vick (Jets) won't be re-signed by the New York Jets this offseason.
Huddle Up: Vick's revival with the Eagles was only five years ago, but it seems eons ago now with the QB set to turn 35 and unwanted by the QB-needy Jets.

New York Jets impending free-agent QB Michael Vick will be allowed to test the free-agent market this offseason, according to a source. The Jets could consider re-signing Vick at some point this offseason.
Huddle Up: The Jets already have Geno Smith, and they may have a shot at either Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota in the upcoming draft. Plus, with a new coach and a new offense there's nothing tying Vick to the Jets. Now if he wants to come back as a backup at a reduced salary, the Jets may be interested.

New York Jets QB Michael Vick (calf) is expected to start in Week 13 if he is healthy, according to head coach Rex Ryan, who downplayed Vick's injury.
Huddle Up: Vick is trending in the wrong direction, going from 196 to 132 to 76 passing yards over the last three games and failing to guide the Jets into the end zone Monday night while throwing an interception. Surely you have better options.

New York Jets QB Michael Vick (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is probable for the team's Week 10 game.
Huddle Up: Vick will play after missing time in the fourth quarter this past Sunday, and he'll face a Steelers' defense giving up the 13th-fewest fantasy points to opposing QBs.

New York Jets QB Michael Vick (foot) will start in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers unless he has any setbacks this week. Head coach Rex Ryan said he is 'really not concerned' about Vick's foot for this weekend. "I'm just going to continue to get treatment all week and just keep doing the same things I did last week and just try not to get it stepped on," Vick said. "Yeah, I'll be good (to play against the Steelers)."
Huddle Up: Vick threw for only 196 yards and one TD while rushing for 18 yards on four carries, but most importantly to the Jets, he didn't turn the ball over. With six teams again on bye in Week 10, Vick could be a decent deeper-league start as he'll likely be trying to keep up with Ben Roethlisberger and the suddenly hot Steelers this Sunday.

New York Jets QB Michael Vick will start in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, head coach Rex Ryan said Sunday, Nov. 2.
Huddle Up: Vick was knocked out of Sunday's game for a while but returned to finish. It's not surprising that he'll be starting in Week 10. Vick will really have to struggle for Geno Smith to be under center again. Vick is a QB2 going forward because of his rushing stats.

New York Jets QB Michael Vick will start this week against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to head coach Rex Ryan.
Huddle Up: It doesn't come as much surprise after Geno Smith's performance and the Jets 1-7 record. While Vick hasn't been much better this year, his ability to put up rushing numbers gives him much more fantasy value than Smith. However, his turnovers makes him only a QB2 right now.

New York Jets QB Geno Smith completed just two of his eight pass attempts for five yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions before being benched in favor of QB Michael Vick in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills. Vick completed half of his 36 pass attempts for 153 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. Head coach Rex Ryan said Sunday, Oct. 26, that he has 'no idea' who the starting quarterback will be in Week 9.
Huddle Up: At this point, does it really matter? The Jets offense is a mess. Vick isn't the answer but he provides a spark with his legs. That could give him a slight edge.

New York Jets QB Michael Vick went 3-for-6 for 17 yards, added 19 yards on thee rushes and looked comfortable in the offense in the team's first preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Aug. 7. He led the first-team offense on an 80-yard scoring drive in his only work with the starters.
Huddle Up: Starter Geno Smith (4-6-33 and 1-10 rushing) also was solid, but the veteran Vick served a reminder that the heat remains on.

New York Jets QB Michael Vick believes he was the pioneer of the move to fast, young quarterbacks in the NFL. 'I was the guy who started it all,' Vick said. 'I revolutionized the game. I changed the way it was played in the NFL.' Vick is currently the all-time leading rusher at the QB position with 5,857 yards.
Huddle Up: Sadly, Pioneer Vick caught a case of dysentery somewhere along the way and didn't complete the Oregon trail. Wait, what? Right now the pioneer is backing up Geno Smith in New York, but if he'd like to lay claim to being the first... well, then, congratulations.

New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said there is 'competition' between QBs Geno Smith and Michael Vick. 'It may not be quite like the competition we had last year, where everything was 50-50,' said Mornhinweg, alluding to the open competition between Smith and QB Mark Sanchez. 'Mike has all that experienced banked. We're trying to continue the progress with Geno, and then have Mike ready to go. It's just that simple, and Mike knows exactly what expectations and roles he has.' Mornhinweg said earlier this offseason that Smith will receive more practice repetitions than Vick.
Huddle Up: From most indications, it sounds like Smith is in line to get the first crack at starting, barring a preseason injury or performance disaster. It's N.Y., though, so you'll have no choice but to stay tuned.

New York Jets QB Michael Vick said QB Geno Smith will be the team's starting quarterback this upcoming season. 'Ultimately our goal is to try to help Geno become the best quarterback that he can be. Myself and [QB Matt Simms] are all trying to put him in a position where he can get better from year one to year two,' Vick said.
Huddle Up: Meanwhile, what might be better for the Jets in 2014 is having Vick start and having Smith watching and learning. Expect an open competition in camp.

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson said the team told him QBs Michael Vick and Geno Smith will compete for the starting quarterback job during offseason workouts and training camp.
Huddle Up: The Jets need to decide early on if they're developing Geno or trying to milk one more quality season out of Vick. A battle that stretches into training camp won't allow either QB to get the necessary reps with the first team.
