The quarterback market hasn't fully formed this year in free agency, mainly because there aren't many good quarterbacks out there. Michael Vick is still a big name, though, and might have plenty left in the tank.

So it's certainly spicy to hear from Rich Cimini of ESPN that the Jets has "definite interest" in acquiring Vick.

The Jets would also be interested in landing Josh McCown, the former Bears backup who played well with Jay Cutler down.

Cimini reports the Jets would like to move "quickly" on Vick, but they understand he'll have plenty of suitors. 

Vick is a natural fit with the Jets, mainly because of his connection with Marty Mornhinweg from his days in Philadelphia.

Geno Smith is the likely future in New York -- and Mark Sanchez is likely on his way out -- but Vick would give them a quarterback with some upside. The question is whether Vick wants to deal with possibly sitting behind Smith there.
