Jets sign Vick; release Sanchez

Vick signs with Jets

The New York Jets have signed quarterback Michael Vick and released Mark Sanchez.
 
The Sanchez move comes as no surprise. He competed for the starting quarterback job with rookie Geno Smith last season in training camp, but the competition was cut short when Sanchez injured his right shoulder in a preseason game.
 
He missed all of last season recovering from surgery.

Vick was a free agent after playing for the Eagles for the last five seasons.
 
The Jets traded up in the 2009 draft to pick Sanchez No. 5 overall out of Southern California. He became a starter as a rookie and led the Jets to the AFC championship game in his first two seasons.
 
Sanchez threw for 12,092 yards and 68 touchdowns, with 69 interceptions, in 62 career games.
