Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer does not get "the vibe" the Browns are interested in Geno Smith.

This disputes a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who linked Smith with the Browns and Chargers. Geno's only concrete link has been with the Giants, who he visited over the weekend. Still recovering from ACL surgery, Smith will likely have to wait a while to find a new home.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Chargers and Browns "have interest" in free agent Geno Smith.

RapSheet added Smith's visit with the Giants over the weekend "went extremely well." Of the three links, the Browns are the only team where Smith would have the opportunity to compete for a starting job. With Geno recovering from an October ACL tear, teams will likely want to see how his rehab is progressing before really kicking the tires.

Art Stapleton of The Record reports free agent Geno Smith will visit the Giants on Saturday.

Smith, of course, just finished a tumultuous run with the Jets. The Giants need to find a capable backup behind Eli Manning, but they also need to look toward the future with Manning clearly in his decline phase. Unless they think Smith has untapped potential, they would be better served turning to the draft.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the Jets believe free agent Geno Smith (ACL) could be sidelined until September.

Smith went under the knife in early-November. There's been talk of a potential return to Gang Green, but Cimini reports Smith's knee could be a stumbling block. Still in the middle of his rehab, Smith might not have much of a market next week.
Feb 28 - 5:44 PM

In an interview with NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, impending free agent Geno Smith (ACL) said he would be "fine" with a backup role.

Smith made it clear his goal is to be a starter, but he is willing to "start from the bottom" and "climb [his] way back to the top" if necessary. He also did not rule out a return to the Jets, saying "all possibilities are on the table." Smith is currently recovering from an ACL tear he suffered in late October, but he expects to be ready for training camp. Where that camp will be is a question which should be answered in the next several weeks.

ESPN's Rich Cimini doesn't think the Jets have given up on impending free agent Geno Smith.

While Cimini agrees Smith might benefit from a change of scenery, he also points out that it wouldn't cost much to retain him. Smith hinted at a return to New York with a cryptic tweet earlier this week: "Don't act surprised ... that's all I'm going to say!" Smith could be agreeable to a one-year, prove-it deal. Smith's Week 7 ACL tear will keep his suitors few and his price tag down.

Geno Smith (ACL) expects to be ready for training camp.

"I’ll be full go during camp next year," said Smith. "Other than that, just taking it week by week. No need to rush it." An impending free agent, Smith will be eight months removed from surgery in July. With Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg under contract, Smith will likely be playing for a different team in 2017.

Geno Smith will have his torn right ACL repaired next week.

This is just for book-keeping purposes. Smith's Jets career is over. He'll hunt for No. 2/3 work if he can get healthy before next summer's training camps.

Geno Smith's knee injury is believed to be a torn right ACL.

It will end the star-crossed quarterback's season, and almost certainly his Jets tenure. Smith attempted 14 passes before going down against the Ravens. Smith has been a hard-luck player for Gang Green, but also woefully incapable of creating his own luck. Smith has made zero progress since being taken with the No. 39 overall pick of the 2013 draft. His field command and lack of awareness are his biggest weaknesses. The Jets will move forward with Ryan Fitzpatrick, who won't be under threat from the awful back-up brigade of Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty no matter how poorly he plays. Headed for free agency, Smith turned 26 earlier this month.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Jets believe Geno Smith's knee is "fine."

Smith will undergo an MRI Monday, but Rapoport reports it is precautionary. If Geno is fine, the Jets will be in a difficult position this week. Neither Smith nor Ryan Fitzpatrick played particularly well, but Fitzpatrick was efficient after replacing Smith and made noise after the game about wanting to start. With the Browns next up on the schedule, whoever starts will be worth a look for quarterback streamers.

Geno Smith (knee) is done for the day in Week 7 versus Baltimore.

He went to the locker room late in the second quarter and did not come out for the start of the second half. Ryan Fitzpatrick will take it home for the Jets. Smith finished with 95 yards passing, including a 69-yard touchdown to Quincy Enunwa. Bilal Powell will close out the game as the Jets' emergency QB.

Geno Smith went to the locker room with a right knee injury in the second quarter of Sunday's Week 7 Ravens-Jets game.

Smith suffered the injury on a second-quarter sack. He made his way to a trainer's table, where doctors checked on the stability of his knee. Geno got up and tried to jog it off, but ultimately retreated to the locker room. It looks like Ryan Fitzpatrick will be back under center for the Jets.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Jets will give Geno Smith a "fair chance" to keep the starting job.

They might as well, given how poorly Ryan Fitzpatrick has played this year. Even if he struggles, which seems likely, Smith should have a relatively long leash. The Jets made the rare decision to roster four quarterbacks this season. Unfortunately none of them are any good. This year has been a disaster for the Jets and that's unlikely to change with Geno under center.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Jets will name Geno Smith their starting quarterback for Week 7 against the Ravens.

The Jets are deciding between two evils. Smith admitted before the Week 6 loss to the Cardinals that he was "getting antsy" to play. Ryan Fitzpatrick was horrible again in Arizona, and Smith replaced him in the fourth quarter only to play just as bad, completing 4-of-6 passes for 31 yards and an interception while also fumbling on a sack. Smith isn't going to be much of an upgrade, but it's hard to be worse than Fitzpatrick. Coach Todd Bowles said Tuesday that Bryce Petty and rookie Christian Hackenberg may also play at some point this season. The Jets are done.
