- La Canfora mentions that the 49ers, Buccaneers, Texans and Vikings are also exploring free agent quarterbacks with Houston being a “likely landing spot” for Vick.
- Assuming the Vikings do not re-sign free agent QB Matt Cassel, La Canfora believes they could also be a fit for Vick.
Ian Rapoport recently reported that the Jets are viewed by people around the league as a “legitimate possible landing spot” for Vick.
Rich Cimini of ESPN New York also mentions that the Jets are “intrigued” by Vick, and believes they should sign him.
While La Canfora doesn’t refute the idea that the Jets could be in the market for a veteran quarterback, he does question how much they will be willing to spend on the position.
- La Canfora adds that Vick to the Jets is “anything but a sure thing.”
As for the Eagles, La Canfora points out that they will have plenty of cap space available and already know that Vick is a fit in their offensive system.
The problem here is that Nick Foles is going to be their starting quarterback next season and Vick has said that he would like to find an opportunity to at least compete for a starting job next year.
Other Speculative Options
- According to La Canfora, the 49ers, Raiders, and Buccaneers are all looking for a veteran backup.
Vick, who will be 34 in June, is widely considered to be the best available quarterback in this year’s free agent class. His durability remains a question mark and his age isn’t exactly ideal. However the limited depth at quarterback should be enough for Vick to at least secure an opportunity to compete for a starting job in training camp.
