Michael Vick hopes for New York Jets starting chance

Michael Vick hopes that he will get the chance to usurp Geno Smith for a starting spot with the New York Jets next season.

New York Jets quarterback Michael Vick has admitted that he is hoping for a chance to prove himself in order to become the regular starter ahead of second-year Geno Smith.

Vick said that he was used to a tough competition for the starting spot with Nick Foles last season at the Philadelphia Eagles, but that he would have to wait his chance this year.

"Going through the competition with Nick, we knew, both of us coming in, that it was open competition, and that the best guy was going to win the job," Vick told NJ.com. "That's what it was. It was pretty much cut and dry.

"But this situation, it's different. It's kind of unique. Even though it's not an open competition, we're both competing every day.

"It's still tough right now - I won't lie. Deep down, you always want to be a starter, you always feel like you're a starter, and that's just the competitive nature in me. Hopefully, that opportunity will come again one day. I've just got to keep working for it."

Vick played seven times last season for the Eagles.
