The New York Jets have added quarterback Michael Vick and he could challenge Geno Smith for the starting role. Rex Ryan said both would have an opportunity to start week one.
“Will there be legitimate opportunities? Absolutely,” Ryan said Tuesday at the NFL Annual Meeting, via the NFL.com.
Despite a quarterback competition that could divide the team, Ryan is still confident in the Jets and issued the league a warning of the 2014 season.
“Watch out for the Jets, man,” Ryan said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “I’m just telling you.”
He still has high expectations for the Jets though.
“My expectations have never changed: I want to win and I expect to win,” Ryan said. “I’ll say this: It’s time to deliver. It’s time to deliver for this community, for New York, for this entire area. We got to step up and deliver. I’m not running from it. Let’s put it that way. I expect a lot out of this football team.
“Nobody’s really talking about us and that’s fine and dandy. They’re going to.”
