If all goes well for Geno Smith and the Jets, Michael Vick will not see much, if any, action this season. But he will have a regular spot on Mike Francesa's WFAN radio show.

Francesa announced Tuesday that starting next week, the backup quarterback will join him on Tuesdays, a seemingly improbable notion given Vick's status on the depth chart and Francesa's long-strained relationship with the team.

"I'm surprised by that myself," Francesa said on the air. "It was started by the Vick camp. They wanted to do something this year on Tuesdays. I'm glad to do it with them. We will have Vick with us every week, I believe on Tuesdays.

"And remarkably, the Jets said yes. That surprised me. We held it up because we didn't know if the Jets would say yes. They did. It was something the Vick camp came to us with and we were glad to do it. I'm looking forward to it."

A team spokesman told Newsday that the organization was not aware of Vick's agreement with WFAN.
