New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan indicated that QB Geno Smith will enter offseason practices in the early lead in the quarterback competition between QB Michael Vick, and Smith will work with the first team when practices start next month. However, Ryan isn't ruling out Vick as the Week 1 starter when the season comes. "It's going to be really interesting to watch that competition unfold. I've said this before -- Geno Smith is going to be hard to beat out," Ryan said. Ryan also said the team may have personnel packages that include both quarterbacks.
Fantasy Tip: With the Jets, there's no telling who will win the job here until much further down the road. Ryan has some loyalty toward Smith, but Vick has the experience in the league and can be more productive if he stays healthy. Either way, it's probably unlikely that you'll want to take the chance on either QB with a QB2 spot on your roster.

The New York Jets will sign free-agent QB Michael Vick (Eagles) to an undisclosed deal, according to team and league sources.
Fantasy Tip: Vick will be given every chance in training camp to beat out Geno Smith as the team's starter. Vick, if he can stay healthy, remains intriguing, but only as a flier for a backup fantasy QB. There's no guarantee he even wins the job, though, and New York's weapons on offense are much less explosive and dynamic than what Vick was working with when he started in Philly.

If the New York Jets sign free-agent QB Michael Vick (Eagles), the team plans for him to compete for the starting quarterback job with QB Geno Smith, according to a team source. Vick has history with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg from their time with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fantasy Tip: Vick is more experienced, albeit injury-prone, but if he is signed and wins the starting job, he'd be a flier as a fantasy backup. Smith's inconsistencies in his rookie season won't drastically improve if he's the starter just because Eric Decker is in town. Consider Smith undraftable in standard leagues if he opens Week 1 as the starter.

The New York Jets preference is for QB Geno Smith to be the team's Week 1 starter. If the team signs QB free-agent QB Michael Vick (Eagles), it would be for camp competition and insurance if Smith struggles or gets hurt.

The New York Jets have interest in Chicago Bears impending free agent QB Josh McCown should he hit free agency. The Jets are looking for a backup in case QB Geno Smith regresses.
