It’s confirmed that free agent quarterback Michael Vick will be visiting the New York Jets this weekend. Most likely visiting to see what kind of plans the Jets have for him, it’s a great opportunity to see what he could bring to the table.
The Jets are in the market to add a veteran quarterback to the team to not only help in the development of Geno Smith, but to also compete for the starting position. Keep in mind an agreement could most likely happen since Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg spent quite some time with Vick when he was with the Philadelphia Eagles. If anyone has an idea of the strengths that Vick could bring to the team, it’s definitely Mornhinweg.
Bringing Vick into the mix will incite some mixed reactions from Jets fans everywhere. While most will say he is past his prime, Vick would actually be a welcomed addition to the team. If the Jets do indeed sign Vick, they will definitely release Mark Sanchez. Both sides could finally breathe a sigh of relief as they part ways once and for all.
It’ll give the Jets the opportunity to move away from the “butt fumble” incident and have everyone move on. It’ll also give Sanchez a huge opportunity to revitalize his career with another team because he will be successful elsewhere. Not only does Sanchez deserve a second chance, he will be inspired to play like he use to when he first entered the NFL.
The Jets should definitely sign Vick to at least a one or two-year deal. He will mentor and develop Smith to become better and give the Jets a solid competitor going into training camps for the starting spot. It will only make Smith play harder and more importantly, smarter to push him towards greatness.
