TMZ is hot on an alleged rumor and report that the No. 7 jersey could prevent Michael Vick from signing with the New York Jets.

Vick of course has mad the No. 7 famous since his first game at Virginia Tech. ¬† He’s gone on to NFL fame with the number and has worn it for close to 20 years now.

Geno Smith currently wears the No. 7 for the Jets, and TMZ is reporting that things could get dicey.

Sources close to Vick tell us … Mike is very serious about rocking #7 next season, no matter which team signs him.

Besides the fact he wore #7 in college and all throughout his pro career, Vick also has a clothing line called V7 — and he’s dead serious about sticking with his number.

Problem is … Geno Smith currently wears #7 … and he’s supposed to be the QB of the future in NY.

Now we’re told the jersey situation is not an absolute dealbreaker — but it will be a “big issue” in negotiations.

In other words … No number? More money.

It sounds like a rediculous report and something to get fans talking.

Vick would look like an egomaniac trying to bully a jersey number from a kid who probably idolized and looked up to him through the years.

Even if that was the case, that would be a negotiation between Vick and Geno, not the Jets.

I’ll believe this scenario when it happens.
