Yesterday we reported that the New York Jets had hired Mart Mornhinweg to be their new offensive coordinator. With that hire came the immediate reports that Mornhinweg might try to bring Michael Vick with him.
That rumor can probably bet put to bed pretty early now. Per Pro Football Talk, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Vick and Mornhinweg did not really get along, and wouldn’t want to work together again in 2013.
With Jets being tied to the hip with Mark Sanchez because of his $8.25 million in guaranteed salary, reports are that the team is unlikely to try to acquire Matt Flynn from Seattle or Alex Smith from San Francisco.
Reports are that the Jets do want someone to compete with Sanchez, and a name that continues to pop up, is Tarvaris Jackson who made an impression on new GM John Idzik during his time in Seattle.
Other names that came up were Matt Moore, Jason Campbell or David Garrard. Yea I know nothing sexy about those names either.
