Appearing on ESPN’s Sunday Countdown, Adam Schefter reports that the Jets and Buccaneers are expected to have some “level of interest” in impending free agent QB Michael Vick.
Having lost his starting spot to Nick Foles, Vick and the Eagles are expected to part ways this offfseason after four years, as Vick has said that he would like to secure a starting job this offseason.
The Jets have been brought up as a speculative landing spot for Vick given that Marty Mornhinweg, his former offensive coordinator in Philadelphia is currently a part of their coaching staff.
As for the Bucs, new HC Lovie Smith has yet to commit to Mike Glennon. being their starting quarterback in 2014. It seems likely that they will be looking for a veteran to pair with Glennon for at the least for the foreseeable future and there is a chance that they could offer Vick an opportunity to earn the job outright during training camp.
Vick, who will be 34 in June, is arguably the best available quarterback in this year’s free agent class, which means he’s likely to find a decent amount of interest in the coming months.
We have Vick listed as the No. 42 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
