Geno Smith plans to sign with the Giants

Now, multiple reports have indicated that the Giants will also add former New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith to the mix.

It makes sense for the Jets and Smith to go their separate ways.

At some point in the relatively near future, the New York Giants will be tasked with replacing Eli Manning.

Smith, 26, started one game for the Jets in place of Ryan Fitzpatrick in 2016 but tore the ACL in his right knee in that game. Even before he suffered the broken jaw, Smith had been mocked in NY for three 2014 incidents: getting thrown off a Virgin America flight in Los Angeles for refusing the flight crew's orders to turn off his cellphone; missing a Jets meeting the night before a game against San Diego because he was at the movies and got the time change wrong; and cursing out a home fan at MetLife Stadium.

The Giants need to begin the search, in earnest, for their next franchise quarterback. And he'll get to learn from a two-time Super Bowl MVP.




Smith is a free agent after a tumultuous four-year stint with Gang Green, which included the infamous punch to the face by IK Enemkpali in 2015 that cost him the starting job.

Smith finished his Jets career with 5,962 yards, 28 touchdowns and 36 interceptions and a 12-18 record in 30 starts. Johnson also agreed to terms with the Giants on Friday, according to his agent.

Johnson, who has spent time with nine different teams over nine seasons, was on the Giants a year ago as their third quarterback.

Manning has 201 regular season and 12 postseason games of National Football League experience under his belt.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo said at the NFL Scouting Combine last month that Nassib is still rehabilitating the elbow injury.
