The future is now. Geno Smith is a New York Jet and could compete with Mark Sanchez right away.
The most important Jet this season won’t even take the field. The chances of success for New York this season are not great, but they rest with Marty Mornhinweg.
John Idzik acknowledged that he and Darrelle Revis recently had “a nice talk.” Other than that, the new New York Jets’ general manager divulged very little, particularly about the swirling trade rumors involving the star cornerback.
“If there’s going to be competition at the position, it’s not going to come from Tim Tebow,” Mark Sanchez’s tutor told USA Today.
“I do believe that he has the potential to lead a football team if you get the right pieces around him,” Warner said. “But the problem is that they’ve got a long way to go here in New York to get the right pieces around him.”
It’s amazing how good a former team can look once you’ve sampled someplace else, and how bad things can be when you’re there in the first place. Brandon Jacobs, Darrelle Revis and Tim Tebow must be feeling those emotions right now.
Unlike Darrelle Revis, Tim Tebow is planning to “voluntarily” — in the true sense of the word — attend the workouts in Florham Park, N.J., beginning on April 15, according to multiple reports.
“He’s doing an excellent job — the progress Mark has made over the past three weeks is definitely very positive,” Garcia said. “It shows that Mark is committed to bettering himself and getting himself more mentally prepared.”
“He’s on the roster, and he’ll get a chance to compete,” Ryan said of Tebow. “We’ll see how the offseason plays out, but right now Tim is on our roster.”
The Cardinals are expected to release quarterback Kevin Kolb, and if they do general manager John Idzik will consider signing him, according to a report.
Despite not taking a regular-season snap in the NFL since 2010, the 35-year-old veteran is healthy and looking forward to trying to beat out Mark Sanchez and whoever else might be in the mix at quarterback for the Jets this season.
Following the announcement of the signing, the newest member of Gang Green tweeted: “Just made it official!! I am a New York Jet!!!!!” Garrard has a 39-37 record in 79 career starts, all with the Jaguars.
Newly-hired New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said Sanchez will probably have “just a little bit of a leg up” in any quarterback competition the team has this offseason.
Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore has agreed to re-sign with Miami. NFL.com is reporting that the deal is worth $8 million over two years.
“I felt like if I am healthy and I am playing at my highest, then that’s going to give me a great opportunity to be the starting quarterback,” Garrard said in a radio interview.
