Buzz: Schaub a Jets target? Vick starting to rule out teams?

Two interesting notes Saturday from sources talking about quarterbacks that might have repercussions for the Jets.

First, and less notably, Matt Schaub might be a consideration by the Jets should they cut Mark Sanchez and begin a search for a second quarterback to back Geno Smith.

Second, that PFT is connecting the dots that the the signings of both Matt Cassel in Minnesota and Chad Henne in Jacksonville likely obviate any interest by Mike Vick in signing in either location.

Per a league source, Vick is unlikely to have any interest in either team given the re-signings of Chad Henne in Jacksonville and Matt Cassel in Minnesota.

As to the Jaguars, word emerged only recently that they had interest. Some believe that the interest wasn’t genuine, and that it was part of the effort to get Henne to agree to terms.

With this addendum.

… look for Vick to look for a team where he’ll be paid as much or more than Cassel received in Minnesota — and where Vick will have a legitimate chance to win the starting job.

Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

It is pretty clear that this is sourced from Vick’s camp and while Jacksonville and Minnesota are taken off the table in the article, no other teams are mentioned.  The Jets, Bills, Texans, Bucs, and Raiders all seem likely landing spots but we can understand why Vick’s camp might want to lay low until his new team seems a probable outcome.  In addition, Vick’s camp is making it clear that he is looking for $5 million a year at a minimum (Cassel’s deal) from wherever he ends up … expect it to be more like $6 million.

The Jets seem like a team that makes a lot of sense for Vick. From a pure football standpoint, New York has plenty of money if they wanted to bring him in and the difference between keeping Mark Sanchez at $2 million and Mike Vick at $6 million seems simple enough.

Matt Schaub- would definetely be a good acquisition ........as a back up of course anything happens to "Geno"  and Matt could jump in and win a couple for you.

I think that guys like Vick and Bret Favre have just to much of an ego. There's just some kinda  glitch in their game. Its just not all there maybe Romo to.


Geno at least if the play isn't there. He throws the ball away. and to me Geno is much more coach able..and in time, he just may has a chance to be great.

Shaub? Ewww.... how low are we setting our standards? I feel like where the ugly duckling if we're considering shaub

Vick at 34, no thanks. I know most here hate on Sanchez, but don't be surprised if he goes to team that drafts Watkins and all of a sudden looks decent.

@happycoco  

He couldn't do much in Houston, what makes you think he'd be better here?

@happycoco I think Schaub is better pick up than vick.   less baggage and also has proven he is capable of winning in the nfl.

Geno showed some really good signs in every other game at the beginning of the season. Then he looked really bad for several games before looking pretty decent at the end of the season. I have no idea what to expect. My gut tells me he is not the answer.

@Pat d  He should go to Buffalo he has always been good at throwing the ball to Bills players.

@Pat d  Sanchez has had good players before, he still wasn't all that great.

@a57se @happycoco  He was pretty good early on in his Texans career though, right?  I know that doesn't help him now, but still, worth mentioning?

Leadership won't be an issue

@williamg1 @Brendan@happycoco@nesboogie  If Cromartie's gone who's standing up and taking on the leadership role that Cro brought to the team last year? I feel if we let Cro go you almost HAVE to bring Ed Reed back. We need a leader in the secondary. Does anyone else feel the same way? That if Cro is gone we will be lacking leadership in the backfield?

@__fense @Bent @a57se @happycoco  Yeah, I was thinking more earlier in his career when he led the league in passing yards (2009) and had five straight years with a top ten QB rating.

If you want to compete in the AFC East you need to have a good looking QB. I.e: Mark Sanchez, handsome kid, 2 AFC Championships. But then he got way too conceded for his own good and fell on his face. Ryan Fitzpatrick ugly dude, Bills are terrible. EJ Manuel, not solo good looking, Bills, not so good looking. Chad Henne, Matt Moore, ugly, Dolphins are a joke. Ryan Tannehill, ehhhhh.... Dolphins? Ehhhh.... Geno Smith, ...he's got potential... Tom Brady, Patriots? Nuff said. Point proven!! Ever wonder why our only Super Bowl came with Joe Nammath? I'm telling you, in the AFC east, its all about the looks.

Lol

look all I'm trying to say is that we should be going after a better looking backup quarterback like Michael Vick he's a pretty good looking guy or McCown he's also a pretty handsome dude

@Pat d  86.5, over 8 points higher than Mark's best QB rating in his career.

What was Vick's QB rating last year

Brendan
Brendan

@Pat d  His lowest rating in Philly was 78.1, Mark's best was 78.2. 


Vick's other four years in Philly: 93.7, 100.2, 84.9, 86.5.

I am serious. What is Vick's QB rating the last couple of years. At 34 he can't rely on his legs.

levi

@Pat d  There should be a couple good QBs prospects available if Watkins is still on the board.

Brendan

@Pat d  This is a joke, yes? You can't be serious right now.

Team that drafts Watkins will most likely need a QB. After Sanchez is cut he will become one of the better QB FAs. Much better than a 34 year old inaccurate Vick. Brendan I know you are more of a stat guy than me. I'm sure you are aware of his QB rating.

I see Sanchez starting with the team that drafts Watkins

In the end you may be right Brendan.. I myself really just don't know.

@Pat d  I'll be surprised if Mark Sanchez is starting somewhere next year.
