Free agent Michael Vick tweeted on Thursday that he's staying "ready."
Specifically, "#READY." Vick's post was accompanied by a short video of him throwing a pass at the end of an agility drill. Now 35, Vick has previously said he expects he may not get a roster shot until someone else gets hurt in camp. Vick is still a plus athlete, and has loads of experience, but his on-field effectiveness has been in methodical decline. Jul 23 - 4:58 PM

Michael Vick believes he'll need an injury to get a shot at an NFL roster.

Quarterbacks such as Terrelle Pryor, Bruce Gradkowski, Tim Tebow and Blaine Gabbert all have jobs right now. Vick, who turns 35 later this month, is still hoping to get another chance. PFT suggests Vick's stature and desire to start games keeps him from being an ideal backup. He's also proven to be extremely injury-prone and a turnover machine over the last five years.

Free agent QB Michael Vick is working out with former NFL WR Chris Chambers in hopes of latching on with a team.

Chambers works with both rookies and veterans, training them for NFL opportunities. "Last two weeks, he has done phenomenal. There are several teams that want him," Chambers said of Vick. "He wanted to be on a winning team. He wants to play three years. Eventually, he wants to start again." Vick, who turns 35 in June, has attracted no known interest since free agency opened.

Pro Football Talk reports free agent Michael Vick still intends to play this season.

Vick has not generated any interest so far this offseason, but that could change as teams start looking for veteran depth following the draft. On a steady decline since his 2010 Pro-Bowl campaign, Vick is nothing more than an underwhelming backup at this point in his career. He will not be a guaranteed a roster spot.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini speculates free agent Michael Vick may draw some interest from the Ravens.

With nobody of note behind Joe Flacco on the depth chart, the Ravens will be linked with a host of backup quarterbacks this offseason. With former Jets OC Mary Mornhinweg now the quarterbacks coach in Baltimore, Vick to the Ravens makes some sense, but he would be a terrible fit for Marc Trestman's offense. He will likely be a backup somewhere else in 2015.

Metro New York reports the Jets will let Michael Vick test free agency.

One source said a return to the Jets is possible, but New York will let him set his value on the free-agent market. Vick was terrible when called on in 2014 and does not have the juice to be the playmaker he was even two years ago. He will find work this offseason, but Vick will not be guaranteed a roster spot come September.
Feb 14 - 11:25 AM

Impending free agent Michael Vick believes he has a "good, solid two years" left in his career.

Neither the film nor the numbers support that, as Vick was an ineffective mess when called on in 2014. Going on 35, Vick was a transformational athlete in his prime, but just doesn't have the juice he did even 2-3 years ago. Vick will undoubtedly crack someone's offseason roster, but won't be guaranteed to remain there come Week 1.

Michael Vick (wrist, illness) was upgraded to full in Saturday's practice and is listed as probable for Week 13.

Vick's missed practice on Friday was illness-related. His wrist injury isn't a Week 13 concern. Vick will back up Geno Smith on Monday night.

Michael Vick (wrist, illness) did not practice Friday.

Vick is expected to be active despite getting benched earlier in the week. He'll back up Geno Smith on Monday night.

The Jets have benched Michael Vick in favor of Geno Smith for Week 13 against the Dolphins.

Coach Rex Ryan reportedly had no say in the matter, as this was a decision from the higher-ups, aka GM John Idzik. Ryan's merely coaching out the season with his hands tied behind his back, though it doesn't really matter who's at quarterback. Both Vick and Smith are terrible, with Vick looking disinterested at times. The Dolphins should blow the Jets out of the building Monday night.

Speaking in a Thursday conference call, Jets coach Rex Ryan said he had yet to decide on his starting quarterback for Week 13.

Michael Vick apparently suffered wrist and ankle injuries in Monday's loss. Confusingly, Ryan said his decision "won't be injury-related." Seeing what Geno Smith can do over the season's final five games would make the most sense, but reports have suggested Ryan is going to stick with Vick.

ESPN New York confirms Jets coach Rex Ryan is planning to stick with Michael Vick at quarterback for Week 13.

The New York Daily News had a similar report Tuesday morning. Vick was depressingly bad in Monday night's neutral-site loss to the Bills, and has just 17 completions over his past two starts. With the Jets' season long in the gutter, it's a bit surprising they aren't giving Geno Smith another looksee over the year's final five games. It's hard to believe Vick will last under center through Week 17.

According to the New York Daily News, Rex Ryan wants to start Michael Vick in Week 13 against the Dolphins.

Beat writer Manish Mehta couches his report by saying Ryan had to clear his previous decision to change quarterbacks previously with GM John Idzik and owner Woody Johnson. "Override this time is possible too," Mehta says. There's also the issue of Vick's calf, which isn't considered a serious issue but could give the front office an out if they want to see what Geno Smith has over the final five meaningless games. Although Vick was nothing short of atrocious on Monday night, we'd still prefer him to get the nod if we own Percy Harvin or Eric Decker.

Coach Rex Ryan said he doesn't know who he'll start at quarterback in Week 13.

Michael Vick looked lost on the field and was yanked during the third quarter of Monday night's ugly 38-3 loss to the Bills. Geno Smith had previously lost his job after going 1-7 as the starter. No matter who starts next week, the Dolphins D/ST will be a preferred fantasy play in a Monday night game at the Meadowlands.

Michael Vick was benched in the third quarter of Monday night's game against the Bills.

Vick was pulled after throwing an interception to Bills S Duke Williams. He appeared to suffer an injury on the previous play, and the Jets let Geno Smith handle mop-up duties. Vick struggled to move the offense before exiting, completing just 7-of-19 passes for 76 yards. Coach Rex Ryan declined to announce who will start next week in his post-game press conference.
