Let’s Gooo New York!!!
Micheal Vick is still winning despite his haters!! The quarterback just signed a one year contract with the New York Jets for $5 million and is looking forward to doing more than sit on the side line as he assists Geno Smith.
Vick signed a one-year deal with the Jets on Friday, the same day New York released former starter Mark Sanchez. The Jets hope Vick, who spent the last five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, will be able to push Smith during training camp.
Geno Smith stated:
Vick is “going to be a guy I can work with, have a really good working relationship with and also compete with,” Smith said at the Charleston Civic Center.
Smith was unfazed by Vick’s comments Friday night on a conference call with New York-area reporters that he wouldn’t necessarily be content standing on the sideline all season.
“That’s every quarterback,” Smith said. “I understand where Mike’s coming from. No one wants to sit the bench. I don’t know a player that does.”
But according to ESPN the team is excited to have Vick on the team..stating:
“We are excited to acquire Michael Vick,” said offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who was Vick’s OC for four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. “He’s a great talent who’s won many games, including playoff games, in this league. He has the respect of both his teammates and opponents. He’s here in a role where he’s going to compete and push Geno Smith to become the very best that he can be. Michael will be able to go in and play at a high level and a winning level if called upon.”
