Michael Vick Sight Adjustment: Uni No. 1

Posted May 3, 2014

Jets QB Decides to Shelve No. 8, He & Ryan Quigley Reach Agreement

Upon further review ... Michael Vick is the one. No, not as in Neo. As in uniform No. 1.

Vick's jersey choice of No. 8 became official Thursday, but Friday, Vick tweeted that he didn't like the look of 8 and so he'll be going with uniform No. 1.

For Vick to get No. 1, punter Ryan Quigley had to give it up, which apparently he did. Early in the process, we heard Vick might ask Quigley about acquiring the number, but then the QB shifted his decision-making to Nos. 3 and 8, asking his Twitter followers to help him decide between the two last Sunday, then initially going with 8 early last week.

If No. 1 becomes official for Vick, he would become the seventh player to wear it in franchise history and the first quarterback. Before Quigley last year, the last player to wear No. 1 in the regular season was K Mike Nugent. The last non-kicker to wear No. 1 in a preseason game was WR Raymond Webber in 2012. The last non-K to wear it in the regular season was the first one, RB Mike Adamle.

Here are the six No. 1's in franchise regular-season history:

Player Pos Jets Career GP
Mike Adamle RB 1973-74 26
Dave Jacobs K 1979 4
Brett Conway K 2000 1
Matt Turk P 2002 16
Mike Nugent K 2005-08 49
Ryan Quigley P 2013 14
