“We worked tirelessly for Geno Smith and all of our draft prospects,” Select Sports Group said. “The NFL Draft is unpredictable, and we prepared Geno and all of our draft prospects, as we do every year, about what can happen during the draft.”
The two discussed the fate of Rex Ryan, the quarterback competition, the current roster, the future of the franchise and much, much more.
The Jets lost more than a backup quarterback or even a potential starting quarterback on Monday. They lost a reminder of what exactly it means to be a man of character and conviction, whether it is convenient or not.
It appears Sanchez won’t be joining Tim Tebow on the unemployment line — at least for now.
The Montreal Alouettes would welcome Tebow to the CFL — provided he’s willing to compete for a job as a backup quarterback.
Tebow was a hybrid of player, prayer and a flashpoint of a complex, spiritual movement. His kneeling refrain doubled as an emblem of optimism. And he has just been released by the Jets, for reasons that only they understand.
It was expected for months, and now it’s a done deal: the Jets have cut ties with Tebow.
The Jets’ QB conundrum is among the hot stories generated once the 2013 NFL Draft came to a close.
Geno Smith is ready to work and confident he’ll become the Jets’ franchise quarterback.
The Jets might be ready to cut Mark Sanchez after drafting new franchise quarterback Geno Smith.
Matt Barkley slid down the board and ended up being selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in round four.
The future is now. Geno Smith is a New York Jet and could compete with Mark Sanchez right away.
Don’t let the defensive picks from Thursday night change your understanding of the reality. If Ryan truly yielded power in that war room, the offense would be trotting out new weapons on Friday.
Will the Jets consider a quarterback such as West Virginia’s Geno Smith or Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib so high in the first round? Or with an eye on the future, might they consider Mike Glennon or Florida State’s EJ Manuel in the second round?
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.
