Smith stays in New York

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!
