NFL Freen Agency: Michael Vick expected to receive interest from Jets, Buccaneers

The Philadelphia Eagles are fully expected to part ways with quarterback Michael Vick in the offseason, which will allow him to find a new home on the open market. There have been questions about whether or not teams will be interested in the injury prone veteran, but it looks like at least two teams will give him a look.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Super Bowl Sunday, the New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to be interested in Vick.

The New York Jets have been linked to Vick for quite some time, so he could very well be the veteran quarterback that comes in to challenge Geno Smith for the starting job.

In Tampa Bay, Vick would be unlikely to beat out Mike Glennon for the starting  job, but he would have a real shot at surpassing the inconsistent Smith on the Jets depth chart and that opportunity to start may be too intriguing to pass up.
