Rather than Geno Smith, Michael Vick should fly the New York Jets

Geno Smith said Monday that he’s “more than capable of” outperforming Michael Vick to remain the New York Jets’ starting quarterback. The 33-year-old Vick and Gang Green agreed to a one-year deal worth $5 million on March 21. “It is going to come down to production on the field,” said Smith, 23. “I just believe with the experience I’ve gained and the direction we...
