Giants Rumors: New York To Sign Free Agent Quarterback Geno Smith

Giants Rumors: New York To Sign Free Agent Quarterback Geno Smith

The quarterback has agreed to terms with the New York Giants, pending passing a physical, a person with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press on Friday.

Smith, 26, met with the Jets earlier this week and was said to be excited with what he saw during the visit. If nothing else, the Giants will get a quarterback with at least some playing experience behind Manning in case the starter suffers an injury.

If you want a completely unbiased viewpoint, my words are waiting for you.

After 29 Years, Issa Hayatou Replaced as African Football President
President, Amaju Melvin Pinnick was yesterday elected into the Executive Committee of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

The quarterback tweeted Friday afternoon, shortly after news of the potential deal broke: "Workaholic".

Smith will likely step in as the No. 2 quarterback on the depth chart behind Manning.

Smith, the Jets' second-round pick in 2013, is best remembered for his 2015 locker-room altercation with IK Enemkpali.

Major foreign policy initiatives, such as they exist in this administration, seem to have been taken away from the department. He was reacting to President Donald Trump's plans to cut the department's budget by 28 percent.

In his most recent season as a full-time starter, 2014, Smith completed 59.7 percent of his passes and threw for 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions.

Oddly enough, Smith's disappointing career started abruptly in part because of the Giants. Smith required surgery and missed almost two months, losing his job to Ryan Fitzpatrick, who enjoyed a career year. He also hasn't played that well, with 28 TD passes and 43 turnovers in his 33 games with the Jets. There is nothing to get excited about there, but Smith is expected to ride the pine.

Smith went 8-8 as the starter, throwing for 3,046 yards, 12 touchdowns and 21 interceptions that season.

Asian indexes mixed, weighing prospects of fewer Fed hikes
Hong Kong's Hang Seng inched up 0.2 percent to 24,347.76, while the Shanghai Composite shed 0.3 percent to 3 3,260.62. The British government, meanwhile, has been cleared by parliament to formally begin the process of exiting the EU.

With Ryan Nassib and Josh Johnson entering free agency, the Giants needed to address the void at backup quarterback.
