LeBron headed back to Cavs:

Report: Jets might eye Tarvaris Jackson but not Vick

The SportsXchange

Former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, but not Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, could be a target for the New York Jets, ESPN reported.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, new Jets general manager John Idzik, formerly the Seahawks' vice president of football administration, could be interested in Jackson.

Vick wouldn't be a fit with the Jets because he didn't have a great relationship with new Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, according to the report. Mornhinweg previously was Philadelphia's offensive coordinator.

Jackson, 29, saw no action in 2012 for the Buffalo Bills. He started 14 games for Seattle in 2011, completing 60.2 percent of his passes for 3,091 yards with 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He spent the previous five years with the Minnesota Vikings. Overall, he has a 17-17 record as an NFL starter.

Vick, 32, fell out of favor with the Eagles last season. He missed several games due to a concussion, then wasn't restored to the starting job, as the team decided to go with rookie Nick Foles. Vick played the season finale when Foles was out due to a concussion.

Over 10 starts this season, Vick had a 58.1 percent completion rate. He threw for 2,362 yards and 12 touchdowns, and he was intercepted 10 times.
