Jets QB Michael Vick wants to play until he's 40

Jets quarterback Michael Vick @MikeVick is entering his age-34 season. He hasn't played in 16 games since 2006, and he's done that only once in his career. He has more turnovers than touchdowns since the beginning of 2011. Last season, he completed 54.6 percent of his passes and lost his starting job. This year, he's slated to be the backup quarterback behind a very flawed youngster in a sub-par offense.
And Vick wants to play seven more seasons. He said so on Thursday.
"I want to play until I'm 40," Vick told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

Fantasy Analysis:

The NFL will let you stick around only if you are A.) healthy; and B.) good. Vick has seldom been either of those things since his monster 2010 campaign. To his credit, many writers have complimented Vick on how understanding he has been about his position as a clear backup while the Jets try to see if they have a future with Geno Smith @GenoSmith_12. However, they don't give out fantasy points for being a good mentor. Vick is playing on a one-year deal in New York. I doubt he's in the league at 36, much less 40. Drew Brees, he is not.
