After initially choosing earlier this week to wear No. 8 with his new team, the veteran quarterback announced on Twitter on Friday that he was going with the No. 1. Vick wrote that he decided the No. 8 was "not the right fit for me" after trying it on.

Vick had worn No. 7 throughout his NFL career with Atlanta and Philadelphia, but that jersey number belongs to current Jets quarterback Geno Smith. After signing with New York in March, Vick said he had no intentions of asking Smith for the number.

Vick was trying to decide between No. 3 or No. 8, but instead called an audible and picked the number worn by punter Ryan Quigley.
