New Yorker's heads would've exploded if this happened a couple of years ago. But now, the Jets traded one turnover/fail machine for another more injury prone turnover machine. Somehow the injury prone one inspires a little more confidence.
Mark Sanchez is a Jet no more, as he's just been released by the team after a season of inactivity. Michael Vick will fill the vacancy; he signed a one-year deal with the team. He'll be reunited with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who had that position in Philadelphia from 2009 to 2012.
"We are excited to acquire Michael Vick," Mornhinweg said. "He's a great talent who's won many games, including playoff games, in this league. He has the respect of both his teammates and opponents. He's here in a role where he's going to compete and push Geno Smith to become the very best that he can be. Michael will be able to go in and play at a high level and a winning level if called upon."
