Mike Vick giving up number out of respect to Geno Smith

Mike Vick has worn the No. 7 on his jersey from high school to college to the pros. It goes without saying, but the southpaw has become quite attached to the number.

However, the quarterback said he won't start a tug-of-war with the Jets player already wearing it. Out of respect to Geno Smith, Vick says he's going to back off and simply pick another digit to don for the 2014 season.

"I want to pick a new number for the Jets, Number 7 is Geno's number," Vick told TMZ Sports.

Another motive behind Vick's decision is that he doesn't want to cause any drama that could possibly divide the team. His willingness to give up his beloved No. 7 shows shows that he's a mature and capable leader, according to Vick.

So what number does that leave Vick with? He's apparently "open to suggestions."
