Coach Rex Ryan made the announcement, which came as no surprise, after practice Monday.
Analysis: Smith is looking to retain the starting job in his second season. He has taken about 80 percent of the snaps with the first-team offense during training camp. Vick signed in March after five seasons in Philadelphia, giving the Jets an experienced backup and playmaker who could push Smith and step in if he falters or is injured.

Analysis: Mornhinweg insists during a conference call Tuesday that the Jets signed Vick last month for the "important role" to push Smith, who was rocky in his rookie season, and make him a better quarterback. The Jets offensive coordinator also says a priority of his is to make sure "nothing impedes the young quarterback's progression." Mornhinweg says Smith will take the first snaps with the starting offense when the team begins on-field practices in a few weeks.
