The New York Jets have begun their search for a quarterback after losing Geno Smith for six to 10 weeks. One of the first players the Jets had a conversation with was Michael Vick, who started three games for the Jets last season.

After discussing the possibility of a reunion with Vick, both parties reportedly agreed that it wasn't in their best interest to sign him.

Vick, 35, wasn't exactly the player he used to be last season. He couldn't unseat Smith as the starting quarterback, and it'd probably be hard for him to do the same to Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Granted, the Jets don't necessarily need a starting quarterback as Fitzpatrick is expected to fill that role for the time being, they just need a viable backup to slot ahead of rookie Bryce Petty.

With Vick crossed off the list of options, the Jets aren't left with many other candidates. Although, the "Hefty Lefty" has made himself readily available.
