It seems as though New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith has been preparing himself very nicely for the upcoming NFL season.
Geno Smith is not about to go away quietly without a fight. That’s for damn sure.
Thanks to franchise single-season TD record holder Ryan Fitzpatrick‘s lofty contract demands, the New York Jets second-round selection from 2013 is currently the starting quarterback. And so far, all has been well in OTAs.
All reports describing Smith’s play has been solid. He seems to have taken a step forward.
The crazy thing is some will now credit New York Giants stud wide-out Odell Beckham Jr. with some of Geno’s positive strides.
According to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York, Smith prepped for OTAs by throwing passes to OBJ, Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro Antonio Brown and Miami Dolphins youngster Jarvis Landry. This went down in South Florida where Geno makes his home during the offseason.
The world now knows this because Landry provided details on Thursday after a Fins practice:
“We go down to North Miami and go against each other and try to just compete against each other,” Landry said.
Obviously it’s been well documented how close Landry and OBJ are to one another (former LSU teammates). Where Geno fits in is anybody’s best guess.
Still, the idea of Geno acting as the QB for those three explosive youngsters is not only a wild one, but extremely intriguing.
