Jets ready for QB competition
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

One of the biggest question marks for the Jets this season is who will be the starting quarterback between Michael Vick and Geno Smith, reports ESPN.

So far, it seems like Smith is in the lead. The Jets plan to give him 70 to 75 percent of the first-team practice reps in training camp. 

Vick was mediocre in the spring practices, but the report says it's not a stretch to think he could light it up in the preseason. After all, he has a background in Marty Mornhinweg's offense, so it should be a seamless transition.

Publicly, Vick says he's OK with his role as the mentor/backup, but perhaps that will change if it becomes obvious he's the best man for the job. From the team's perspective, the best that could happen is Smith steps up and makes it an absolute no-brainer.

Antonio Allen trying to unseat Dawan Landry
by Larry Hartstein |

Jets third-year safety Antonio Allen has a good chance to unseat Dawan Landry for a starting job, reports the New York Daily News. Landry had 100 tackles, a sack and an interception last year.

"Landry was adequate but unspectacular last season, and the Jets may be hoping to unleash some of Allen’s playmaking ability," the report said. The paper considers first-round pick Calvin Pryor "a lock" to man one safety spot.

Report: Jets not in market for Andre Johnson
by Larry Hartstein |

The Jets could use a receiver to pair with Eric Decker, but Metro New York reports the team is not pursuing disgruntled Texans wideout Andre Johnson.

Acquiring Johnson "is not something we are actively pursuing," a team executive told Metro New York, adding “he isn’t a fit for where we are heading." The executive said Johnson is a special player, but he'd hurt the team's cap flexibility.

So far, Houston has not shown a willingness to trade Johnson, the report said.

Teammate: 'It's Geno's team'
by Larry Hartstein |

Jets receiver David Nelson told CBSSports Radio that the entire team views Geno Smith as the starting quarterback.

"For all of us, it’s Geno’s team," Nelson said. "And from what we’ve been told and what we’ve been working toward, it’s Geno’s team, and Mike Vick is coming in to kind of (fill) a supporting role. If anything happens to Geno, we have a proven starter and a proven winner backing him up. That’s the direction we’re moving."

The New York Daily News said the real question is what happens if Smith doesn't perform up to expectations in the preseason. Vick could still unseat him, the paper said.

Report: Jets could be ready to 'cut bait' on Stephen Hill
by Larry Hartstein |

Jets receiver Stephen Hill drew strong reviews for his work in minicamp. But the New York Daily News insists the Jets "could be ready to cut bait on their 2012 second rounder who has had two miserable seasons, especially if he can't stay healthy in the preseason." 

Hill was selected under the Mike Tannenbaum regime, so general manager John Idzik "just may cut the team's losses on him," the report said. Hill has 45 catches for 594 yards and four touchdowns through two seasons.
