Michael Vick is one of the more attractive names available in a shallow free-agent market at quarterback and should have multiple options. A recent report linked him to the Jets, but league sources believe Jets GM John Idzik would not be inclined to spend in the range it would likely take to land Vick, and regardless, other teams are interested.

The Raiders are mulling several veteran quarterbacks, Vick included, and that looks like the best opportunity for Vick to start quickly. The Vikings, 49ers, Bucs and Texans are also exploring free agent options. If Matt Cassel does not return to Minnesota, Houston is seen as a likely landing spot for him.

Furthermore, the Eagles could end up keeping Vick, as he is well-liked and has a presence in their locker room, and also willingly accepted and handled losing the starting job to Nick Foles last season. Philadelphia has plenty of cap space and a veteran presence who already knows Chip Kelly's system certainly has value.

Several teams have interest in veteran Josh McCown, who thrived in a starting role for the Bears when Jay Cutler was injured last season, and he could be an option for New York as well, again, based on the club's willingness to spend.
