Get Ready To Compete, Geno: Jets Sign Michael Vick, Cut Mark Sanchez

The New York Jets have released quarterback Mark Sanchez, as expected.
But wait, there’s more!
The Jets also announced on Friday the signing of quarterback Michael Vick, who’s expected to compete with Geno Smith for the starting job.
General manager John Idzik has stressed the importance of competition since his hiring last year. Sanchez gave Smith a run for his money last summer before a preseason shoulder injury sidelined him for the entire 2013 campaign.
Now it’s Vick’s turn to try and wrestle the job from Smith, who was benched twice during a rough stretch of his rookie season but finished on a high note for the Jets, who ended up 8-8.
“I love competition and I love football,” Vick said during a conference call Friday night. “And, I feel I have a lot of football left to play. It’s evident with what I was able to do last year.”
