The Jets were interested in Mike Vick, but according to Kim Jones on NFL Network’s Around the League sides seem to be stuck right now which will force both sides to walk away from the deal … at least for a little while.
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comAs we expected, right now Vick is looking for what looks like an almost guarantee that he can start and so far no team in the league is willing to give him that. While the money might be right, Vick is in no rush to make a decision now that no clear path to a starting role outside of Oakland exists for him.
Vick likely isn’t in a rush to sign with a team just to be stuck as a backup. If he’s going to be a backup, he might rather just go play for the Eagles. At this point Vick might even be in a position to hang tight until closer to training camp to pick a team he thinks offers him the best chance to play in 2014.
