New York Giants rumors: Geno Smith signing?

Geno Smith Geno Smith

According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, the Giants have reached an agreement with former New York Jets second-round pick Geno Smith.

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

The Giants have also signed quarterback Josh Johnson to a deal, but they are not quite done yet.

After playing 30 games between 2013 and 2014, Smith appeared in just three games for the lowly Jets between 2015 and 2016. With Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg the only arms on the roster, Smith was looking more enticing by the day.

We have a target (to win the League and FA Cup) and it's important we concentrate on trying to reach that target. Stoke are without Glen Johnson but welcome back Marko Arnautovic, Xherdan Shaqiri and Wilfried Bony.

While he will still receive the same level of scrutiny from the media in the Big Apple, the pressure will at least be off as a certified backup behind Eli Manning, who hasn't missed a start since earning the job in his rookie season.

Smith is expected to take a physical this weekend with the Giants, and if everything goes well could sign with the team on Monday, Schefter reported. Last we heard, Smith did not expect to hit the field until training camp.

Enemkpali, claiming Smith owed him $600, fractured the quarterback's jaw with a punch to the face. Smith was fined by the National Football League for cursing at a fan at a home game and he received a torrent of criticism for missing a team meeting on a West Coast trip, claiming he got the time zones mixed up.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo said at the NFL Scouting Combine last month that Nassib is still rehabilitating the elbow injury.
