When the Jets acquired top free agent at wide receiver Eric Decker, they knew he would be the No. 2 option when it came to what he brings to the team.

He was also a very accomplished track and field champion in college, which explains his unreal speed.

At the current moment, the Jets have declared that quarterback Geno Smith is the starter as Michael Vick will be backing him up. Whether that stays the same after training camp ends is a whole different story, but it looks like this is Smith's job to lose. If Vick completely outshines Smith then a switch will most likely happen, but in all likelihood, Smith will be the Jets' starting quarterback this upcoming season.
