Ryan Fitzpatrick says he'll be ready for training camp


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/19/2015) Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who's coming back from a broken leg, said he'll be limited in OTAs but fully ready for training camp, reports ESPN.com. Geno Smith and Matt Simms will get more reps in OTAs, the report added.

Fitzpatrick is expected to start for the Jets after posting a 95.3 passer rating in 12 games with the Texans last season.


Report: Ryan Fitzpatrick favored to start for Jets


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/12/2015) New Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to win the starting job, reports Metro New York. The Jets acquired Fitzpatrick from the Texans for a conditional 2016 seventh-round draft pick.

As the roster currently stands, Fitzpatrick, 32, will have to beat out Geno Smith and Matt Simms. In 12 games with Houston last year, Fitzpatrick completed 63.1 percent of his passes for 2,483 yards and 17 touchdowns with eight interceptions.

“He's head and shoulders the best quarterback on this roster and he wasn't brought in to be the backup or be a mentor,” the source said. “He was brought in to compete and earn that starting job and he's expected to do that.”

New Jets regime mum on Geno Smith's future


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/21/2015) New Jets coach Todd Bowles and general manager Mike Maccagnan had little to say about quarterback Geno Smith's future at a news conference Wednesday, reports Pro Football Talk. Bowles referred to Smith as "a great college quarterback" but didn't assess his performance as a pro or say whether Smith would be his 2015 starter.

Maccagnan, asked about the team's quarterback situation, said he doesn't "want to get too far ahead of ourselves." Smith is under contract through 2016, while Michael Vick is set to hit free agency. Smith accounted for 14 touchdowns and 16 turnovers this season.

The Jets could draft a quarterback at No. 6 overall.


Jets QB Geno Smith skips team meeting on Monday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) Just a day removed from throwing a perfect game and leading his team to a season-finale win over Miami, Jets quarterback Geno Smith skipped a team meeting just hours after the team parted ways with general manager John Idzik and coach Rex Ryan on Monday, reports Jason Cole of Bleacher Report. The reasoning for his absence was not made public.

Smith completed 20 of 25 passes for 358 yards and three touchdowns in a 37-24 victory over Miami, sending Ryan out as a winner. Earlier in the week, he indicated that a coaching change "could be good for us all," and that he sees himself as the starting quarterback for the Jets for a "long time." Smith, the 39th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, finished the season with 13 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions and 2,502 passing yards.


Jets QB Geno Smith: Coaching 'change could be good for us all'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith sounded like a man who knows the fate of his current head coach on Monday. When asked about dealing with coaching changes while at West Virginia, Smith told reporters that a "change could be good for us all," according to the New York Post.

Smith, the 39th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, has completed only 58.2 percent of his passes, compiling 2,167 yards through the air, with 10 touchdowns and 13 interceptions his sophomore season.

"It is all about what you make it," Smith said. "I think the toughest part about it is not being able to continue to play for the same coach the same guy that you learned to love, you invest so much in, and you believe [in] them. To reset and readjust is a tough thing to do, but we are professionals and we have to do it. A change could be good for us all, so if it happens, when it happens, then we will see."

Team owner Woody Johnson is reportedly interested in hiring former general manager Charley Casserly as a consultant, should the Jets choose to make a change in leadership. After reaching the AFC Championship in his first two seasons, Ryan is in the midst of his worst season as a head coach (3-12) and could be out the door along with general manager John Idzik following Sunday's season finale at Miami.


Jets QB Geno Smith held in check vs. Patriots


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith was held in check in his team's loss to the Patriots in Week 16.

Smith hooked up with Jeff Cumberland for a 20-yard touchdown strike in the second quarter. He completed 17 of 27 passes for 210 yards with one touchdown and one interception, registering a 83.9 quarterback rating. He was sacked twice and rushed for 9 yards on three carries.

Smith will finish the season on the road against the Dolphins.


Rex Ryan confirms Geno Smith will start again Week 14


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/2/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan said quarterback Geno Smith will start Sunday at Minnesota, reports the Associated Press. Smith only dropped back to pass 15 times in Monday's loss to the Dolphins. He went 7 of 13 for 65 yards, his last pass getting intercepted.

Asked if he learned anything from Smith's performance against Miami, Ryan replied: "No, because he only threw it 13 times. ... I'm just kidding."

Smith replaced Michael Vick in the third quarter of the Week 12 loss to Buffalo.


Jets don't let Geno Smith throw much on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/1/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith dropped back to pass 15 times in Monday's 16-13 home loss to the Dolphins. He was 4 of 8 for 42 yards until New York had to throw, trailing by a field goal with under two minutes left.

Smith forced his final pass to tight end Jeff Cumberland. It bounced off linebacker Jelani Jenkins into the arms of safety Reshad Jones. Smith finished 7 of 13 for 65 yards with one interception, and he ran four times for 19 yards.

The Jets visit Minnesota in Week 14, and it remains to be seen whether New York will stick with Smith or go back to Michael Vick.


Jets QB Geno Smith mops up Week 12


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/24/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith relieved Michael Vick in the second half of Monday's 38-3 loss to the Bills. Smith completed 10 of 12 throws for 89 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions.

The Jets haven't announced which quarterback will start Week 13 against Miami.


Jets undecided about Week 13 quarterback


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/24/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan said he hasn't decided whether Michael Vick or Geno Smith will start at quarterback on Monday Night Football in Week 13 against Miami. "We'll address that later," he said. "I don't know yet."

Ryan benched Vick for Smith in the third quarter of the 38-3 loss to the Bills.


QB Michael Vick secures NFL rushing record in Sunday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Jets quarterback Michael Vick did little after the first quarter Sunday against Pittsburgh. But then, he did enough before that to key a rare victory.

Vick missed wideout Jeremy Kerley in the end zone to force the Jets to settle for a field goal on the first possession, but he made up for it with a perfect 67-yard touchdown pass off play-action to T.J. Graham and 5-yard scoring strike in the back of the end zone to Jace Amaro. He completed the quarter 4 of 5 for 92 yards and the two scores.

He finished the game 10 of 18 for 132 yards and aided the cause with his legs, rushing for 39 yards on eight carries. Those yards made him the first quarterback in NFL history to exceed 6,000 on the ground in a career.

Vicl will have plenty of time to savor his performance as the Jets are now on their bye week.


Report: Jets coaches might have hindered Geno Smith's development


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) While the Jets continue to evaluate whether or not Geno Smith is a franchise quarterback, there is a fear the coaches might have hindered Smith's development by dictating his reads, NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport said during an interview Sunday morning with NFL Network.

"Usually a quarterback is able to drop back, go through his reads then deliver the ball. I am told that Geno Smith was informed of his reads, told, 'You need to throw the ball here on certain plays,'" Rapoport said. "The most egregious example came on an interception on a pass (in Week 8) intended for Percy Harvin that Stephon Gilmore, the Bills corner, picked off. Smith was told; 'This is where you need to throw the ball.' And obviously, for a quarterback who is now taking a breather last game and this game, may have hurt his development a little bit."

Michael Vick is making his second straight start Sunday against the Steelers since Smith was benched in Week 8 after throwing three interceptions. Smith was inactive last week due to a shoulder injury.


Jets' Ryan: Geno Smith has approached demotion 'right way'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan is pleased with how quarterback Geno Smith has handled his demotion from the starting quarterback role, according to Newsday.

"I think he has prepared well. I guess time will tell once he gets an opportunity to play again," Ryan said. "I don't think any player likes it. They shouldn't like it. But, I think he approached it the right way."

Smith was benched in favor of Michael Vick heading into Week 9 against the Chiefs. Vick will be under center again Week 10 against the Steelers, and Ryan gave no indication about when Smith might return to the starting role.

"I am not really looking past this game," Ryan said Monday. "So if that happens, then it happens. Right now we are going with Mike to play against Pittsburgh, and that's as far as I have thought about it."


Rex Ryan: Jets more concerned with Michael Vick's foot issue


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan told reporters during his Monday news conference that he's more concerned with Michael Vick's lingering foot issue than any other injuries. Ryan noted that Vick, who made a brief exit with a head injury, got stepped on a few times during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, the New York Daily News reports.

Vick is expected to be the starting quarterback for Week 10 against the Steelers.


Michael Vick not explosive enough?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/2/2014) Making his first start in place of the ineffective Geno Smith, Jets quarterback Michael Vick was surprisingly efficient throwing the ball Week 9 at Kansas City, completing 21 of 28 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown. What he lacked were the explosive plays that defined him for most of his career with Philadelphia and Atlanta, with only five of his completions going for more than 10 yards.

Even as a runner, he put everyone to sleep, picking up 18 yards on four carries. He was safe and boring, the complete opposite of everything Fantasy owners had known him to be, and with six more teams on bye in Week 10, they'd give anything to have the old Vick back.

The good news is he'll get another chance Week 10 against Pittsburgh. Coach Rex Ryan has already confirmed he's the starter. But coming off this performance for a team known for playing it safe on offense, how can you trust him in Fantasy/


Jets QB Michael Vick named Week 10 starter following Week 9 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jets quarterback Michael Vick was able to finish out Sunday's 24-10 loss at Kansas City despite briefly leaving in the fourth quarter due to a head injury. Vick was hurt on a 4th-and-goal play early in the fourth quarter, as he was slammed to the turf on an incomplete pass.

Vick laid on the ground for a few moments before rising to his feet. Although, he appeared wobbly walking off the field and needed the help of the trainers to make it to the sideline. Vick was evaluated on the bench for a few minutes before walking to the locker room. With Geno Smith (shoulder) inactive, Vick was replaced by Matt Simms.

However, after missing just one series, Vick surprisingly made his return to the game. Prior to getting hurt, he was 12 of 14 for 92 yards and one touchdown -- a 3-yard pass to Eric Decker late in the second quarter. He also rushed for 12 yards on three carries. He finished the game 21 of 28 for 196 yards, while rushing for 18 yards on four carries.

The Jets are back in action Week 10 vs. Pittsburgh. Coach Rex Ryan said after Sunday's loss that Vick will start next week.

"As long as he's healthy, we'll go with Mike," Ryan said.


Jets QB Michael Vick returns after missing one series


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jets quarterback Michael Vick surprisingly returned to the game Sunday against the Chiefs after leaving early in the fourth quarter with a head injury. Vick missed just one series before returning to the game.

While Vick was sidelined, backup quarterback Matt Simms went 3 of 8 for 39 yards. Vick went to the locker room for further evaluation before returning to the game. He was initially listed as questionable to return.


Jets QB Michael Vick exits game Week 9 due to head injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jets quarterback Michael Vick had to leave Sunday's game at Kansas City in the fourth quarter due to a head injury. Vick was hurt on a 4th-and-goal play early in the fourth quarter, as he was slammed to the turf on an incomplete pass.

Vick laid on the ground for a few moments before rising to his feet. Although, he appeared wobbly walking off the field and needed the help of the trainers to make it to the sideline. Vick was evaluated on the bench for a few minutes before walking to the locker room. With Geno Smith (shoulder) inactive, Vick was replaced by Matt Simms.

Vick threw just his second incompletion of the game on the play he was injured. He was 12 of 14 for 92 yards and one touchdown -- a 3-yard pass to Eric Decker late in the second quarter. He also rushed for 12 yards on three carries. The Jets are back in action Week 10 vs. Pittsburgh.


Report: Geno Smith might be back as Jets starting QB in Week 10


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith's benching might not last very long. The beleaguered second-year quarterback could return to the starting quarterback role as soon as Week 10 against the Steelers because the team doesn't view Michael Vick -- who is starting Sunday against the Chiefs -- as the long-term solution at quarterback, team sources told NFL.com.

Smith might be inactive Sunday against Kansas City due to a shoulder injury he suffered Week 8. If that happens, Matt Simms will be the team's backup quarterback.


Jets GM unsure if team has franchise quarterback on roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith said following his demotion Monday the he "without a doubt" can be a franchise quarterback in the NFL, according to Newsday. Jets owner Woody Johnson said something similar in early October after Smith got off to a rocky start this season.

It seems, however, that general manager John Idzik might not have the same opinion. Asked during an interview with SNY that aired Tuesday, if he believes there is a franchise quarterback on the Jets roster, Idzik said: "Don't know that. Don't know that. That's still to be determined. You don't want to try to answer that question too prematurely."

In a 38-minute press conference with the media Monday, Idzik didn't provide many details about Smith's future with the team. He took a similar approach during the interview with SNY.

"We will continue with the development curve and we will continue searching," Idzik said. "We'll continue to try to enhance that position in any way we can."

Michael Vick is set to start at quarterback for the Jets in Week 9 against the Chiefs.


Jets' Rex Ryan: QB Geno Smith's shoulder not at '100 percent'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan told reporters on Monday that Geno Smith's shoulder injury isn't expected to be serious moving forward. However, he admitted that Smith isn't 100 percent healthy and if he's not available to backup Michael Vick against the Chiefs in Week 9, then the team will likely promote Matt Simms from the practice squad to serve as the No. 2 quarterback, according to the New York Daily News.

The recently benched quarterback injured his shoulder while making a tackle on his third interception of the afternoon against the Bills in Week 8. He completed only 2 of 8 pass attempts for 5 yards with no touchdowns and three interceptions before he was replaced by Vick after four drives.


Jets officially announce Michael Vick will start Week 9


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan made it official on Monday, announcing that Michael Vick will be the starting quarterback over Geno Smith for Week 9 against Kansas City. Ryan told reporters that the move was his decision and that Vick's hold on the starting job isn't guaranteed beyond this week, per the New York Daily News.

Vick took over for Smith after the second-year quarterback three three interceptions against the Bills. Ryan hopes that Smith will "maybe get a different perspective" by watching Vick play from sideline. Vick lost two of four fumbles and completed 18 of 36 pass attempts for 153 yards with one interception in Week 8 against Buffalo.


Report: Jets QB Michael Vick expected to start over Geno Smith


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Barring a last minute "power play" decision from general manager John Idzik or owner Woody Johnson, the Jets are expected to start Michael Vick at quarterback against the Chiefs in Week 9, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News on Monday.

Vick took over for second-year starter Geno Smith, who threw three interceptions against Buffalo. Vick led the team with 69 yards on the ground, but failed to make much of an impact through the air. The veteran quarterback completed 18 of 36 passes for 153 yards with one interceptions and losing two of his four fumbles in New York's 43-23 loss on Sunday.


Geno Smith: 'I honestly believe that I can turn things around'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) No one could blame Jets quarterback Geno Smith for being upset after he was pulled during Sunday's loss against the Bills. After completing just 2 of 8 passes for 5 yards and three interceptions, coach Rex Ryan made the decision to bench Smith and go with backup quarterback Michael Vick.

Though, Smith still appeared to be exuding confidence in his abilities after Sunday's loss, even though his struggles haven't been confined to one game. The second-year quarterback has more career interceptions (31) than passing touchdowns (19).

"Obviously, I don’t want those things to happen," Smith said, per NJ.com. "It’s never an ideal situation for any quarterback. I never envisioned that happening (Vick replacing him) because I do see myself as the starting quarterback, and I honestly believe that I can turn things around myself to get this team going. But if those things do happen, I have to learn from it."

Ryan announced Monday that Vick will start Week 9 against the Chiefs. However, he would not name Vick the starter beyond the Chiefs game.


Jets QB Geno Smith's comeback bid foiled by blocked FG


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith worked past a minor injury scare and put together a turnover-free performance, but it wasn't enough in Week 7 defeat to the Patriots in Foxboro.

Smith took a brutal shot to the knee from Chris Jones and was on the on the floor momentarily before jogging off the field. Michael Vick took over for one play before Smith returned to action early in the fourth quarter. He told reporters after the game he won't need a follow-up MRI exam on his knee, per Newsday.

Down only eight points, Smith bounced back with 10-yard touchdown strike to Jeff Cumberland. He was unable to hook up with his other tight end, Jace Amaro, for the game-tying two-point conversion with 2:31 remaining in the game. Down only two points, he got another chance and orchestrated an 8-play, 48-yard drive which led to a blocked 58-yard field goal as time expired.

Smith compiled 226 yards through the air, 153 of which came in the second half. He completed 20 of 34 pass attempts, adding one touchdown and no interceptions. He was sacked three times and rushed for 37 yards on seven carries in a 27-25 defeat. He has thrown for 1,365 yards with seven touchdowns and seven interceptions this season.

Smith will look to get his team back on track Week 8 at home against the Bills.
