Rex mentioned that the Jets are getting someone that has proven something in the past. (Michael Vick.)
“You’re getting a guy who has proven to be a winner.” Rex said at breakfast in the league meeting today. “The kid can still run and he has athleticism in him. Does he have the chance to be our Week 1 starter? Probably.”
The Jets signed Michael Vick to push Geno Smith, but both quarterbacks may have to fight for a starting position.
“Vick and Geno will each have a chance to prove to be the starter.” Rex said. “Will there be legitimate opportunities? Most definitely.”
Even though Vick and Geno will most likely be in a match for the starting position in camp, there’s a chance that the coaching staff will utilize a strategy to use both of them on the field. Kind of like what former quarterbacks, Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow did two seasons ago.
“We may even use a package that puts both of them (Vick and Geno) on the field together.” Rex said. “There may just be a chance that it’ll happen.”
“No body is talking about is now but I’m just saying, watch out for the Jets.” Rex said in his final statement.
