From the moment Marty Mornhinweg was announced as the Jets' new offensive coordinator, the notion of Michael Vick following him to the Big Apple has run rampant.

Still, don't look for it to happen.

ESPN's Adam Schefter says to 'forget about the idea' of Vick landing with the quarterback-needy Jets.

Mornhinweg, formerly the Eagles' playcaller, worked with Vick for the past four seasons, but their relationship ended on down terms. Apparently, neither are interested in a reunion.

Though even prior to Mornhinweg's hiring, the Jets were linked as a potential home for Vick. Last month, coach Rex Ryan raved about the 32-year-old, saying he'd "love" to bring him aboard, thus beginning the initial speculation.

However, Vick's age, durability concerns, and contract all prohibit the would-be marriage from taking place. New York has little wiggle room in terms of cap space -- thanks to Mark Sanchez's bloated contract -- and couldn't afford taking on Vick's mammoth salary. Not to mention, he'd bring along a circus-like following, a bad idea after the failed Tim Tebow experiment.

Instead, look for Gang Green to target the lower tier signal-caller. Tarvaris Jackson is a possibility due to his Seahawks ties with new Jets general manager John Izdik, and the New York Post also mentions Matt Moore, Jason Campbell, and David Garrard in the same breath.

While it's unclear who the Jets will end up starting next season, Vick is one name you probably can check off the list.
