Michael Vick has worn No.7 during his entire career with the Falcons and Eagles.

But with Geno Smith wearing the number with the Jets, Vick was unable to get it from the second-year quarterback. Therefore, he originally decided to wear the next number up, No. 8.

Well, he's changed his mind and has decided to switch to No. 1 instead.

"After trying on the #8 I decided that it's not the right fit for me. I'll be going with the #1 officially. Thank You #JetsNation," Vick wrote on his personal twitter account.

For Jets fans that want to purchase Vick jerseys, it's a good thing he changed his mind before Jets No. 8s went to production.
