Jets’ Smith expects a QB competition next summer
New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith anticipates another
training camp competition for the starting job next summer.
The struggling Smith acknowledges Monday that he hasn’t lived up
to his own expectations during a mostly rocky first NFL season in
which the Jets have gone 6-8.
The second-round draft pick, who has 10 touchdowns and 21
interceptions, says he expects to be in ”full competition with
myself and every other guy who’s in camp.”
Smith was in a close competition with Mark Sanchez this
preseason, but became the Jets’ starter after Sanchez suffered a
season-ending shoulder injury.
Smith, whose 2,642 yards passing are a franchise rookie record,
says ”we’ll see” when asked if he has proven to the front office
that he should be the starting quarterback next season.
