Jets' Geno Smith spent two months training with QB mentor House
by Michael Hurcomb |

Jets quarterback Geno Smith spent nearly two months this offseason training with former major-league pitcher Tom House, according to ESPN. House said he had Smith focus on four basic metrics: Biomechanical, functional strength, nutrition and a mental/emotional profile.

"I think he left incrementally better in all four metrics," House said.

House described Smith as a hard worker that is "not afraid to put in the time." House said they challenged Smith and "he met the challenge perfectly."

"He's really good," said House, who has also worked with Tom Brady and Drew Brees. "None of them are perfect -- Nolan Ryan and Greg Maddux weren't perfect when they came to me -- but we try to train for perfection."

Smith spoke highly of his time with House, who said he made "incremental changes in (Smith's) delivery and incremental changes in his conditioning."

"This should make him a more consistent performer for a longer time," House said.

Jets QB Geno Smith vows to be better
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Geno Smith, who figures to be in a battle for the Jets starting quarterback job with Ryan Fitzpatrick, said Monday after the team's first voluntary workout that he needed to perform better this season, per Newsday

"In this league, there isn't room for excuses ... moral victories. I've got to put this team in a position to be successful," he said. 

Smith managed 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns with 13 interceptions a season ago.

Todd Bowles: Jets planning to add another quarterback
by Jason Butt |

Jets coach Todd Bowles is a fan of competition. 

Instead of being content with quarterbacks Geno Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Matt Simms competing for the starting job, Bowles, via the Newark Star-Ledger, said the team has plans to add a fourth signal caller to the mix

Bowles said this on a conference call with season-ticket holders. 

"Ryan's going to compete, as well as Geno's going to compete," Bowles said. "And we hope to add somebody else to help compete with that along with Simms."

That could mean many things, such as adding a veteran quarterback, a mid-to-late-rounder or someone looking to get back in the league. Or perhaps it's a sign the Jets want to take a quarterback — possibly Marcus Mariota — with the sixth overall pick if the opportunity arises.

Jets QB Geno Smith enters training camp as starter
by Dave Peters |

Jets head coach Todd Bowles said that for now quarterback Geno Smith will be the starter entering training camp, reports

"Geno, he's our guy, right now," Bowles said at the NFL annual meeting at the Arizona Biltmore here. "When we get to training camp, Geno will start out running the first-team reps. He's the only quarterback we have right now, if we don't draft one, with Ryan Fitzpatrick hurt."

The Jets recently picked up quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in a trade with the Texans.

Smith, 24, was drafted in the second round of the 2013 draft. The thrid-year pro has thrown for 5,571 yards with 25 touchdowns and 34 interceptions.

Jets' Woody Johnson: Geno Smith 'probably way ahead of' Marcus Mariota
by Jason Butt |

Jets owner Woody Johnson isn't giving up on quarterback Geno Smith yet. 

Speaking to the New York Daily News, Johnson hinted he would be happy sticking with Smith instead of selecting a quarterback such as Oregon's Marcus Mariota in the upcoming NFL draft. 

"Geno’s probably way ahead of him at this point, believe it or not," Johnson said. "Whether you guys have skepticism or not … but certainly his college career was good."

The Jets are picking sixth overall and could see Mariota fall to them. The possibility of trading up could present itself, too. 

"That’s something that we’re going to look at," Johnson said. "We’ve got from now until the start of the season to address every position, not only quarterback. We’re going to have competition at every position. We’ve said that before and we’re going to have competition here. Hopefully, it’ll bring out the best in the quarterbacks and all the positions."
