Geno Smith gets bulk of first-team reps


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) As expected, the Jets gave quarterback Geno Smith the bulk of the first-team reps Thursday. Smith got 13 and Michael Vick got four, reports the New York Post.

Geno Smith to get 70-75 percent of first-team snaps at camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith will take 70 to 75 percent of the first-team snaps at training camp next month, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg told the New York Daily News. Smith is clearly ahead of Michael Vick in the quarterback "competition."

As long as Smith doesn't flop, he'll open the season under center.


Geno Smith to take first reps at OTAs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said quarterback Geno Smith will take the first reps at OTAs, ahead of Michael Vick, reports the New York Daily News. Mornhinweg further said that Smith will get a few more reps than Vick.

"We brought Mike in to compete, to push Geno and to make Geno the very best he can make him," Mornhinweg said.


Rex Ryan: QB battle won't be a distraction


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan told Pro Football Talk that the quarterback competition between Geno Smith and Michael Vick won't be a distraction because "we're not going to let somebody else's agenda get in our way." Ryan presumably referred to the media.

Ryan also reiterated that Smith, who accounted for 18 touchdowns and 25 turnovers as a rookie, will be hard to beat out.


Rex Ryan: Starting QB job is wide open


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan said the starting quarterback job will be an open competition between Michael Vick and Geno Smith. "We want that competition," he said. "We'll let it all play out."

Ryan stressed he's seeking competition at every position, not just quarterback. He said Smith will be hard to beat out, but raved about Vick's mobility.

"He's an unusual guy," Ryan said of Vick. "He was unusual when he came out of the league because of how athletic he was but I think he's definitely still … you see all that athleticism he has. He can still run, moves well in the pocket, he's more accurate when throwing from the pocket than he used to be when he came into the league.

"He's got a big arm and can still run so very dangerous. I like the fact that both those guys give us the ability to run zone reads and all those types of things that help your running game. Having a guy, that mobile quarterback, is harder to defend then maybe a guy who's a stationary pocket guy.

"That being said, I'd probably rather defend a mobile quarterback than a Peyton Manning or Tom Brady."


Michael Vick gets one-year deal with Jets


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) Minutes after announcing the release of Mark Sanchez on Friday, the Jets officially announced the signing of free agent quarterback Michael Vick. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Vick agreed to a one-year, $5 million contract. No further details have been made public.

Vick visited the team earlier in the week and was presumed to be the top choice of the Jets this offseason. He completed 54.6 pct. of his passes with the Eagles last year for 1,215 yards and five touchdowns with three interceptions over six starts.

"He's here in a role where he's going to compete and push Geno Smith to become the very best that he can be," offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said, via the team's Twitter account.


Jets part ways with Mark Sanchez


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) The Jets announced that quarterback Mark Sanchez has been released Friday.

Sanchez, the former first round pick, was set to make $9 million with a $2 million signing bonus later this month had he stayed with the Jets. He underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in February and is recovering from shoulder surgery in October. He did not play a down in 2013.

Jets could keep Mark Sanchez in 2014


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) There's a chance the Jets could keep quarterback Mark Sanchez on a revised deal for 2014, reports Pro Football Talk.

Sanchez isn't expected to return with a $9 million base salary and a $2 million roster bonus due later this month. But the report says there's a possibility Sanchez could come back for lesser money.

The report says the final outcome depends on whether the teams potentially interested in Sanchez find other quarterbacks elsewhere in the early days of free agency.


Ryan proud of Geno Smith, not sure on Mark Sanchez status


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/4/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan said nothing has changed with the future of quarterback Mark Sanchez coming back to the team in 2014, reports the Newark Star-Ledger . He also is excited about the future for Geno Smith.

"We'll just let that play out and see what happens," Ryan said about Sanchez. "But it's nothing I'm going to make a comment on."

Sanchez is in the last year of his contract with the Jets and is set to make $9 million with a $2 million signing bonus later this month if he's still on the team. Because of his $13.1 million cap charge for 2014, he is expected to be cut.

As for Smith, Ryan had nothing but praise for the second-year passer.

"I really like where he left off," he said. "The last month of the season was probably his best. I know he had some rocky spots, to say the least. And so did we as a team. But to finish where he did, I think he was the second-highest rated quarterback at the end of the season. Very few turnovers. he ran the ball effectively as well. So he used his legs, used his arms, cut down on turnovers. I think if he could play that way, we're going to be tough to beat."


Two Mark Sanchez scenarios floated


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) In the unlikely event the Jets want to keep quarterback Mark Sanchez, there are two scenarios that could unfold, reports ESPN.com. Both involve the Jets asking Sanchez to take a big pay cut.

If they try to cut his base salary from $9 million to $1 million, "it would be insulting, a strong indication he'd have no chance to unseat [Geno Smith]," the report said. If the Jets offer $3 million to $5 million with incentives, "it would show they consider him a viable starting option."


Jets not ruling out sequel to Mark Sanchez-Geno Smith battle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) Jets general manager John Idzik said he wouldn't mind seeing Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith battle for the starting quarterback job again this summer, reports the New York Post. The expectation was Sanchez would be released, but Idzik maintained he's still a starting-caliber NFL quarterback.

Sanchez is "making very good progress" on his shoulder rehab, Idzik added. If the Jets are serious about keeping Sanchez, they'd likely ask him to redo his contract.


Geno Smith working out with Weinke


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith plans to work out this offseason with former NFL quarterback Chris Weinke, reports ESPN.

Weinke worked out with Smith last season at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., leading up to the NFL scouting combine. The report says Smith has been working with Weinke to stay sharp and fine-tuning his throwing mechanics. 


Geno Smith to get help, competition this offseason


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/10/2014) The Jets plan to address two areas of need this offseason on offense with receiver and quarterback, reports NFL.com. Receiver is a must, and they also want to bring in competition for quarterback Geno Smith.

The report says it won't be a surprise if the Jets take the best available wide receiver off the board with the 18th overall selection in the NFL Draft. They could also go hard after free agent Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker, who's coming off a career year.

Finding competition for Smith is also a priority, whether that be through the draft or locating a veteran in free agency. Smith is still expected to enter 2014 as the starter, but he needs to improve -- and adding receiver help will definitely help his chances of that happening.


Report: Mark Sanchez had surgery on knee


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2014) Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez underwent arthroscopic knee surgery while recovering from shoulder surgery, ESPN has reported. The rehab for both procedures are going well.

Jets GM works with Geno Smith on offseason incidents


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2014) Jets general manager John Idzik said he has spoken with quarterback Geno Smith about handling the social side of the NFL after two regrettable offseason incidents.

Smith was involved in a verbal altercation with a Virgin America flight attendant after refusing to shut off his cell phone before takeoff, though the airline was the one that issued an apology. Lewd photos of Smith were previously posted on Instagram by an Atlanta woman who claimed to have had an affair with him.

"When you're a quarterback in the NFL and you're a quarterback for a franchise in a big market such as New York, all eyes are on you 24/7," Idzziki told ESPN. "I think Geno is experiencing this first-hand. Obviously, I've kept in close contact with him. This is part of learning how to deal with these things.

"We've addressed them, he's addressed them, so [I have] no real concerns that way. It's just how to deal with your celebrity and the visibility that goes along with that position."


Rex Ryan refuses to commit to Geno Smith as starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan has refused to make the same commitment to soon-to-be second-year quarterback Geno Smith that he did in the 2013 offseason to demoted Mark Sanchez.

Ryan told the media last year that Sanchez would get the first preseason snap, but has not uttered the same promise about Smith. "We'll see who's on the roster before we make that decision," he told the New York Daily News.

Smith proved inconsistent in his first year. He completed 56 percent of his passes for a Jets rookie-record 3,046 yards, but managed just 12 touchowns and 21 interceptions. He suffered through a stretch in which he tossed just one scoring pass and 11 picks.


Geno Smith OK after apology from airline


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith said he has accepted an apology from Virgin Airlines for an incident last week that resulted in him being removed from a flight from Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale - of course, before it took off. He added that he is looking forward to flying again with the airline.

Report: Jets to add veteran QB to push Geno Smith


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2014) The Jets will be in the market this offseason for an experienced quarterback with the capability of pushing Geno Smith for the starting job, ESPN has speculated. It remains to be seen whether that addition comes via trade or free agency.

Smith proved wholly inconsistent as a rookie in 2013. He completed just 56 percent of his passes for 3,046 yards, 12 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.


Dumping three contracts would give Jets money to spend


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) The Jets are likely to allow three highly paid players to leave in free agency, ESPN has speculated.

Dumping the contracts of wide receiver Santonio Holmes, quarterback Mark Sanchez and cornerback Antonio Cromartie would create $26.1 million in salary cap space, giving the Jets a total of more than $40 million in cap room.


Mark Sanchez could be in demand


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/22/2014) There could be a market for Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez if he's released this offseason as expected, reports the New York Post

The report says one coach of a quarterback-needy team said his team already has discussed Sanchez internally as an option to be its starting quarterback in 2014.

"We'd take Sanchez," the coach said. "He'd be the starter as soon as he walked in the door for us."

The Jets are being tight-lipped when it comes to their plans for Sanchez, who has three years left on his contract. But he has a $13.1 million salary-cap figure for 2014 and the Jets would save $8.3 million against the cap by releasing him.

Sanchez is currently rehabilitating his right shoulder in Birmingham, Ala. He had surgery in October on the shoulder after injuring it in an August preseason game.


Argument has Geno Smith kicked off plane


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2014) Jets quarterack Geno Smith was removed from a planned flight from Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale on Friday after supposedly refusing to remove his headphones, ESPN has reported. He was questioned by airport police at the gate, but was not arrested and no incident report was filed.

A source told ESPN that Smith could not hear a request to unplug all electronic devices. A flight attendant unplugged his headphones, threw them down, told Smith he was a "threat" and asked him to leave the plane. His conversation with police was at his request.


Report: Jets re-sign Matt Simms


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2014) Jets backup quarterback Matt Simms has signed a one-year deal to stay with the team, reports NorthJersey.com. He appeared in three games behind starter Geno Smith, completing 16 of 31 throws for 156 yards and a touchdown with one interception.

Geno Smith played better out of the shotgun


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith played well down the stretch, accounting for seven touchdowns against two turnovers in the final four games. The difference was that New York increasingly used the shotgun.

"We found what worked for us and stayed the course with it," running back Chris Ivory told The Star-Ledger

Smith worked almost exclusively out of the shotgun in college. In Week 16 against the Browns, with Smith in the shotgun, the Jets produced four scoring drives of at least 79 yards for the first time in 40 years.


Report: Mark Sanchez likely to be waived


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/1/2014) Quarterback Mark Sanchez is expected to be cut by the Jets rather than compete with Geno Smith for the starting job next season, according to the New York PostSanchez has three years remaning on his contract, which calls for him to earn $9 million in 2014.

General manager John Idzik gave a rather cryptic response when asked about the future of Sanchez with the team.

"We'll get to that in time," he said. "He is a Jet. We consider all our guys Jets until we make a decision or something happens that changes that."

Sanchez lost his starting spot to Smith and injured his shoulder. He did not play a down this year.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
