Jets express interest in Vick, McCown
By Rich Cimini
After only one hour of free agency, the New York Jets are targeting at least two quarterbacks -- Michael Vick and Josh McCown, according to a league source.
The Jets have a definite interest in Vick, the source said. In an ideal world, they'd like to wrap it up quickly, but the former Philadelphia Eagles starter will have other suitors.
Ditto for McCown, who is scheduled to visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Houston Texans and Jets -- in that order. The feeling around the league is that McCown, wildly successful last season when he replaced the injured Jay Cutler, could land with the Bucs. No visit has been set up with Vick and the Jets, but there appears to be mutual interest.
The Jets are looking for an experienced quarterback to compete with Geno Smith.
