Mornhinweg said that there was competition for the starting jersey, but to begin with the focus is on improving Smith with Vick playing a support role.
"There is competition," Mornhinweg told NJ.com. "Now, it may not quite be like the competition we had last year where everything was 50-50.
"We're trying to continue the progression with Geno, and then have Mike ready to go. It's just that simple, and Mike knows the exact expectations and roles that he has, and Geno knows the exact expectations."
Smith was drafted by the Jets last season.
