According to Eliot Shorr of NJ.com, free agent quarterback Michael Vick will be visiting the New York Jets this weekend.
Vick is planning on visiting the Jets this weekend, a source close to the situation has told NJ.com. This will be Vick’s first official visit, and could be his last if all goes well. And the pressure could be on the Jets to land a free agent, given a methodical and fruitless approach that has left fans impatient and critical of general manager John Idzik — while the Giants have been on a shopping spree.
VIck wold be a great fit for the Jets, but they’re not ready to hand him the keys to the offense and give him the starting job right away. He would be more of an insurance policy if Geno Smith struggles.
