Following the lead of his former Jets teammate Brandon Marshall, former Jets’ quarterback Geno Smith is expected to sign with the New York Giants. Smith, who was a backup last season with the Jets, is expected to compete for the backup quarterback position behind Eli Manning. According to reports, the deal is contingent upon Smith passing a physical. Smith is coming off a torn ACL in 2016.
If healthy, I think this a good move for the Giants and Smith. For Smith, it gives him an opportunity to work under Manning and prepare for his next starting opportunity; for the Giants, they get a guy who is looking to prove himself, which can be a good thing!
Former Jets QB Geno Smith scheduled to take his physical with Giants this weekend, and if it goes well, he would sign Monday, per source.
