Jets release Sanchez, sign QB Michael Vick for 1 year, $5 million
Michael Vick is switching green jerseys — and maybe trading his clipboard for a starting job.
FOX Sports NFL Insider Mike Garafolo has confirmed that Vick has agreed to a one-year, $5 million contract with the New York Jets.
“I love competition and I love football,” Vick said during a conference call Friday night. “And, I feel I have a lot of football left to play.”
Vick will present a real challenge to Jets starter Geno Smith, who played well down the stretch of his rookie season, but finished with 12 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.
“As of right now,” Vick said, “Geno’s the starting quarterback of this football team.”
But, Vick also made it clear that he still envisions himself as a starter.
“I wouldn’t say I would necessarily be OK with sitting on the bench all year,” Vick said. “But, I know what I signed up for and I know what I came to New York to do.”
He said his first order of business is competing with Smith and helping the second-year quarterback along.
“At the end of the day,” Vick said, “I’ll be content with it.”
