New York Giants Expected To Sign Quarterback Geno Smith

Just minutes after reports surfaced saying the Giants had reached agreement on a new long-term contract with defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that they were also expected to sign former Jets quarterback Geno Smith.

In his last two years with the Jets, Smith threw for 391 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in three games.

Smith's tenure with the Jets was rocky, to say the least.

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.

Bringing in backup options behind Eli Manning is a good move for NY.

In a rare move, the US has indicted two Russian government agents for their suspected involvement in a massive Yahoo data breach. In a statement on Wednesday, Yahoo thanked the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation for their efforts.


This moves reunites Smith with former Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who signed with the Giants earlier in the offseason.

The Giants also signed QB Josh Johnson today, so they have some choices to make about the pecking order.

Smith endured a rocky start to his career - from being benched to being decked by a teammate - after being a second-round pick in the 2013 draft.

With the Giants, the issue is not whether Smith can emerge as an option to one day become Manning's successor. Nassib underwent elbow surgery and is a free agent. Smith replaced Ryan Fitzpatrick as the starter in Week 7 of 2016, but suffered a knee injury against the Baltimore Ravens and missed the remainder of the season.
