PHILADELPHIA - Michael Vick is coming back to Philadelphia wearing a different shade of green and a new uniform number. The four-time Pro Bowl quarterback is expected to start for the New York Jets (2-1) against the Eagles (1-2) in Thursday nights preseason finale. He probably wont see much action before giving way to Matt Simms. Jets starter Geno Smith and most of the No. 1s for both teams arent playing. Vick resurrected his career in Philadelphia after missing two seasons because of his imprisonment on dogfighting charges. He began his five-year stint with the Eagles as a third-string quarterback behind Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb in 2009 and finished as the backup to Nick Foles. In between, Vick had the best all-around season of his career in 2010 when he was The Associated Press Comeback Player of the Year, the NFC Pro Bowl starter and led the Eagles to an NFC East title. "I had a great run there with a lot of great memories and accomplished some things that can never be taken away from me," Vick said. "Im ecstatic about that, thankful and very grateful." Vick should receive a loud ovation from Eagles fans. Though he arrived to protests and boos, he quickly won over the city with excellent performances on the field and model behaviour off it. Vick was active in the community and was a team leader, mentoring young players and serving as a liaison to the coaching staff. "The chemistry that I had with the organization was uncanny," he said. "The relationships that I developed with the people in the front office were awesome. All my teammates, I had a great deal of appreciation for and I think I could say thats vice versa. We had a great time. We won a lot of games. We lost some games. Through all the good and the bad, we always stayed tight and I think thats what was most important." Vick battled injuries in Philadelphia and eventually lost his starting job last year to Foles, who had one of the best statistical seasons of any quarterback in league history. When he left for New York, owner Jeffrey Lurie issued a statement praising him for his time in Philadelphia. Its not often an owner says anything when a free agent backup leaves town. But Vick was no ordinary player. Vicks appearance will be the highlight of a game that will feature mostly third-string players, guys fighting for roster spots and some hoping to save their NFL careers. Matt Barkley will start at quarterback for the Eagles while Foles and backup Mark Sanchez watch safely from the sideline. Sanchez, who led the Jets to AFC titles games his first two seasons in the league, had an outstanding preseason after trading places with Vick. "We need to see Matt play a lot," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. "I think we feel comfortable in what Mark Sanchez has done in the first three games. We want to see Matt play for an extended period of time." Both coaching staffs face tough decisions before Saturdays roster deadline. The Eagles have strong competition at running back, wide receiver and linebacker. Theyre also unsettled at kicker. Incumbent Alex Henery is battling new acquisition Cody Parkey for that job. The Jets will be looking carefully at their cornerbacks following Dimitri Pattersons suspension. Patterson is expected to return Monday, but Dee Milliner is still recovering from a high ankle sprain. It could be a last chance for wide receiver Stephen Hill to stick with the Jets. Injuries and inconsistency have made him a second-round disappointment. "A lot of jobs still up and opportunities for guys to show what they got one last time," Jets coach Rex Ryan said. ___ AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ___ Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_RobMaaddi Cheap Baltimore Ravens Gear .

However, he appeared to confirm a report on Twitter from TSN this week that Johnson was on Montreals negotiation list.SEATTLE -- Snubbed from a World Cup camp invite by Nigeria, Obafemi Martins was determined not to sulk about missing out on a trip to Brazil. Martins said earlier this week his World Cup is the next two months playing for the Seattle Sounders. And it started with his finest goal since joining Major League Soccer. "I just want to score goals," Martins said. "Thats what I did and Im glad." Martins scored in the eighth minute to give the Sounders a 1-0 win over the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday night as both teams began a possible two-month stretch with some of the top players in the league off competing at the World Cup. Martins goal will be in the discussion for best of the season as the year progresses. His goal came from a shallow angle just 4 yards off the end line. Instead of settling Gonzalo Pinedas pass, Martins chipped the one-hopper with his left foot over San Jose goalkeeper Jon Busch and just inside the far post. It was the fifth goal of the season for Martins. Instead of the usual backflip that has accompanied his previous goals, Martins simply shook his head possibly a little surprised his difficult attempt found the net. "Its an athletic ability. You cant teach that. Its something that somebody has," Seattle coach Sigi Schmid said. "Its definitely as good a goal thats been scored here." Busch said shots from that shallow an angle usually end up coming at the near post or end up on top of the net. "So now he finds the back post. Tip your hat to him. Nothing you can do," Busch said. "Doesnt matter who you are or where you play, thats a good goal." The Sounders (8-3-1), who remained the MLS points leader, opened the whole stadium for the firstt time this year and drew 49,746, the largest crowd for any MLS game this season.dddddddddddd Seattle was without three U.S. World Cup hopefuls, while the Earthquakes were minus two. Clint Dempsey, Brad Evans and DeAndre Yedlin were gone for Seattle and San Jose (2-4-4) played without Chris Wondolowski and Clarence Goodson. Also gone for the Earthquakes was Honduran hopeful Victor Bernardez. The Sounders could have been without Martins as well, but he was not selected to join Nigeria for its World Cup camp. Teaming with Dempsey at the top of Seattles attack, Martins has a resume this season that would have been worthy of a call. Instead hes being asked to be the offensive catalyst for Seattle with Dempsey gone. Seattle controlled the match and likely should have scored two or three more times if not for stellar goalkeeping by Busch. He stopped attempts from Lamar Neagle twice in a seven-minute span of the second half and turned away Osvaldo Alonsos attempt in the 84th minute. "My job is to make saves and keep us in the game. I did my job," Busch said. All the shots being peppered toward Busch made for a quiet night at the other end for Seattles Stefan Frei. With Wondolowski and Bernardez gone, the Earthquakes were missing seven of the 11 goals they have scored this season. The only player in San Joses starting lineup with a goal was midfielder Cordell Cato. San Joses only official shot on goal came on a free kick in the 90th minute from Khari Stephenson that Frei smothered. It was the second shutout of the season for Seattle and important after giving up five goals last Sunday to New England. "The commitment of the team this week after last week was playing to zero," Schmid said.
