Giants expected to add ex-Jets QB Geno Smith

Interest on the National Football League free agent market has been quiet so far on Nassib, but may pick up now with the news Johnson has been re-signed to be the Giants backup to Manning, who has never missed a start.

Smith appeared in just three games for the Jets in the last two years, getting benched for a revolving door of mediocre starters. Backing up a Manning brother is one of the best jobs in the entire country.

The Jets, meanwhile, looked like an increasingly likely option for Smith despite the original consensus that the two sides would part ways. He and Smith would get to play together again, on the same field.

NY has selected quarterbacks in each of the last two drafts-Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty-and may target another QB early in the 2017 edition. He may have had an opportunity to start with the Cleveland Browns, but has apparently chose to remain in NY as Eli Manning's backup.

Smith, 26, met with the Jets earlier this week and was said to be excited with what he saw during the visit.

Smith, a second-round pick back in 2013, boasts a career 12-18 record in 30 starts with 35 total touchdowns and 36 interceptions. Nassib underwent elbow surgery and is a free agent.

Like receiver Brandon Marshall last week, Smith is leaving the Jets but remaining in the same stadium. Johnson also agreed to terms with the Giants on Friday, according to his agent.
