The extremely controversial Michael Vick era with the Philadelphia Eagles is over. After 5 year with the Eagles have let him sign with the NY Jets. The Jets in turn cut QB Mark Sanchez after five seasons including an injury shortened 2013 season.
Vick will now compete against 2nd year QB Geno Smith for the starting job on the Jets. Smith, who had an up and down rookie season, led the Jets to an 8-8 record which was not bad for a rookie QB. There is nothing but up for Smith and Vick will give that veteran depth and some controversy that coach Rex Ryan seems to like. Remember this is the same coach that brought Tim Tebow to NYC and then never really used him.
You can bet that Vick will be a lightning rod of controversy when he gets to NYC. First, it will be the off the field stuff then the fans will see him play and realize that there is no there there.
