The New York Jets, never a team to fail to surprise the football world during the NFL Draft, did just that on Firday evening with the selection of West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith. Smith plunged down first-round draft boards and was still available at the end of the first-round on Thursday night. With the 39th selection on Friday, the Jets decided to pull the trigger on Geno Smith.
Now while the value in Hayes was there at the 39 spot, this was not an ideal selection for the Jets. Head coach Rex Ryan, who was already on the hot seat as a lame duck coach, is now in an even more precarious position while the Jets sit with six quarterbacks on their roster.
The Jets, which have been a mess for the last two seasons, need to resolve this situation as quickly as possible. Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow, David Garrard, Greg McElroy, Matt Simms along with Smith are all on the roster. The media loved the circus the Jets created last season with the addition of Tim Tebow and wasted no time in cal...

Geno Smith says he would grade his performance in his first practice with the New York Jets an ''F'' because he's aiming to be ''an A-plus.''
Despite the tough self-evaluation, the quarterback looked pretty good Friday at rookie minicamp. Smith appeared to have a solid working knowledge of the playbook, and zipped many of his passes - mostly in...
Geno Smith was surrounded by a throng of reporters, a crowded scene usually more appropriate for a No. 1 draft pick than a second-rounder.
But Smith, of course, isn't your ordinary No. 39 selection. And, the New York Jets are certainly used to their quarterbacks -- and backup quarterbacks, for that matter -- getting this type of attention.
''I just come out,''...
The Jets wanted to draft Geno Smith with the 13th overall pick, but decided to bulk up the defense in key areas. The Jets were very fortunate to have Smith fall into their hands with the 39th selection. By selecting Smith in the second round, the Jets have all but announced that the era of Mark Sanchez is over, and Tebow is now on the trade block. Sanchez was simply a horrible...
Thrilled with his opportunity to compete for the starting job in New York, rookie signal-caller Geno Smith is taking the bull by the horns as he aims to be the Jets quarterback of the future.
According to a report from the NY Post, Tim Tebow has be cut by the New York Jets as of Monday morning. Though he showed up 15LBs lighter to volunatary workouts which began last week, and an improved throwing motion, the disaster that was Tim Tebow in New York is no longer. It comes as no surprise with the selection of Geno Smith in the 2nd round of this past weekend’s NFL Draft...
With Dustin Keller now in Miami, the New York Jets have a big hole to fill at tight end. It was a bit of a surprise to me that they didn’t spend a draft pick on a tight end but after stealing Geno Smith in the second round, they took offensive lineman with their next three selections.
Mike Shanahan has a chance to make the team just based on being with the right team at the right...
After a pretty successful draft, the buzz surrounding the New York Jets is back. Fans of the team are already penciling in Geno Smith as the starting quarterback, and it seems likely to happen. The question is, can a few nice rookies really turn the ship around for the Jets after a pretty dreadful 2012 campaign?
Last season, the Jets excelled on defense, while struggling quite...
The Tim Tebow-New York Jet, experiment is officially over.Once the Jets selected Geno Smith with the 39th overall pick in the draft many had assumed it was the end for Mark Sanchez and his time with the Jets, but as it turns out it's Tebow who is left without a job.Now the question becomes, can he find another job in this league?The Jets have been shopping Tebow around the league...
You could tell, Geno Smith was more than a little disappointed when, he wasn’t taken in the first round of the NFL draft. The question I have to ask now is, if Smith is happy being taken by the New York Jets with the 39th pick in the 2013 NFL draft? Going to the New York Jets, is like taking part in the circus. The head ring leader Rex Ryan, likes it that way. If the Jets were...
So it begins.
ESPN and other media outlets report that the New York Jets released little-used quarterback Tim Tebow this morning, leaving the team with five quarterbacks on the roster.
New York's little brother team might have cut less heralded Greg McElroy, Matt Simms, or, um. Mark Sanchez. Instead they excised the most useless outsider in NFL history.
The 2013 NFL Draft has concluded. All of the picks are in and now teams are calling free agents. This year's Draft was unpredictable and exciting.It kicked off with the surprising pick of OT Eric Fisher from Central Michigan and continued with surprising picks such as the Jets selecting Geno Smith and the Cardinals selecting Tyrann Mathieu.Some teams had good drafts while others...
The New York Jets waived QB Tim Tebow this morning after drafting Geno Smith at the start of the second-round of the NFL Draft at the end of last week. Tebow’s release comes as no surprise, even with the addition of Smith via the draft. The question now becomes, where will Tebow land and will he find employment? It seems as if he has entered the restaurant business.

Tim Tebow was released by the New York Jets after drafting Geno Smith, and the Twitter world reacted in hilarious fashion.
Three days after taking West Virginia standout Geno Smith, the New York Jets clipped embattled quarterback Tim Tebow earlier this morning. By releasing the 25-year-old Tebow, who has thrown 17 touchdowns, against nine interceptions, for 2,422 yards in 14 starts, Gang Green will save $2.58 million in salary cap space. Tebow, acquired from the Denver Broncos for a fourth and sixth...
