Vick 100 percent high road on Tuesday Dan Leberfeld

Florham Park – In past interviews throughout the spring, Jets reserve QB Michael Vick showed a little ankle, at times, talking about frustration, and saying he can take the Jets to the Super Bowl.

Today, he traveled 100 percent on the high road during his press briefing.

He was asked where he fits in on the Jets at the quarterback spot?

“Wherever I am supposed to fit in,” Vick said. “Whenever I am asked to go out there and perform and be at my best that’s what I’m going to do.

He also talked about how much he loves helping the team’s starting quarterback, Geno Smith.

“I think that it’s going to be a great situation, and that’s part of why I am here,” Vick said. “I think all of our quarterbacks, you have to take your time with, you have to help them out. There all young, so I am just trying to do my best in perfecting my craft and helping them perfect theirs.

How is Smith doing as a student?

“I think ‘G’ (Smith) is a great listener, first and foremost,” Vick said. “I think any key to success in this sport at our position you have to have to ability to listen. I think Geno wants to learn, he wants to be better. It all starts with your desire and your ambition.”

It sounds like Vick is in a better place right now as far as accepting his backup role.
