NEW YORK – Michael Vick is the new No. 1 for the New York Jets.
After initially choosing earlier this week to wear No. 8 with his new team, the veteran quarterback announced on Twitter on Friday that he was going with the No. 1. Vick wrote that he decided the No. 8 was “not the right fit for me” after trying it on.
