NFL: New York Jets would be interested in Geno Smith

Looking for a new quarterback for the next season, the New York Jets would be interested in bringing back a familiar face.

According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, the team is reportedly studying the possibility of signing future free agent Geno Smith.

Smith, 32, was originally drafted in the second round in 2013. He went on to play 33 games over four seasons, starting quarterback for 30 of those games.

Since then, the native of Miramar, Florida played for the New York Giants, Los Angeles Chargers and Seattle Seahawks as a backup quarterback from 2017 to 2021.

Last season, Smith won the starting job for the Seahawks after training camp and led them to the playoffs with a 9-8 record. Smith threw for 4,282 yards on 399 of 572 passes with 30 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. His efforts earned Smith his first Pro Bowl appearance and he was named the top comeback of 2022.

In addition to their interest in Smith, the Jets have already met with free agent Derek Carr, who was released by the Las Vegas Raiders earlier this month, and are also interested in upcoming free agents Jimmy Garoppolo and Daniel Jones.
