NFL Injury Report:
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan said Friday that there's no "clear-cut favorite" to start at quarterback next season, promising only that Mark Sanchez will see "competition from day one."
Yet this has not stopped the Jets hosting potential first round draft picks quarterbacks for workouts, as they did on Sunday with West Virginia's Geno Smith, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York:
It was widely reported March 14 that Jets senior personnel executive Terry Bradway attended the West Virginia pro day, headlined by QB Geno Smith. Turns out that Bradway was accompanied by offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. The Jets' contingent had some private time with Smith, and they came away very impressed. The Jets have warmed to Smith since last month's scouting combine, where he didn't blow people away with his interviews. Some feel that may have been caused by fatigue (the combine can be a grind), but he certainly redeemed himself in the eyes of the Jets.
The New York Jets have the 9th overall pick in the draft this year, but will Geno Smith still be on the board by then is anyone's guess. The Buffalo Bills are 8th and in need of a quarterback having cut supposed saviour Ryan Fitzpatrick, and the Arizona Cardinals may go knee-jerk with the 7th pick.
Although why any team would want to go high on a quarterback who is low on most draft expert boards is surprising, however, this is the New York Jets.

Jets Are Rebuilding, Right?
The John Idzik Jets are making changes. Lots of them. Personnel wise and schematically on offense. Can anyone honestly make a case for the notion that this...
Free-agent outside linebacker Bryan Thomas was the longest-tenured New York Jets player last season, having appeared in 157 games over 11 seasons.
Yet, Thomas now 33 is contemplating retirement after doctors found a torn tendon in his shoulder when they operated on a pectoral muscle injury six weeks ago. As Thomas explained to the New York Daily News:
“I haven’t even...
Believe it or not Tebow is still a member of the Jets. At least for right now they have no plans on releasing or trading him, but no matter what they say, he isn’t in the mix to be the starting quarterback.
He has a lot of post career options, he will make a ton of money (already has) from speaking engagements, but maybe he can make a few more dollars acting.
Producer David Dginguerian...
It was a season to forget for both Tim Tebow and the New York Jets. Now it seems as if their unhappy marriage will be over sooner rather than later.
It’s appearing more and more likely that the Patriots will only have to face Darrelle Revis once this year.
The Jets cornerback is expected to be traded to the Buccaneers for two “high draft choices,” according to Peter King of Sports Illustrated. New England plays the Bucs at Tampa Bay next season.
The Jets owe Revis $6 million in 2013. Trading Revis won’t save them any...
The New York Jets are so far away from the Super Bowl this season, even Rex Ryan is afraid to talk about it. He won’t admit he is in a rebuilding year though, but I’m okay with that. That’s only because the Jets aren’t trying to rebuild. They just seem to be content falling apart. Even the “strongest” part of their game, played by the running back, is completely missing...
If the whole NFL quarterback thing doesn’t work out for Tim Tebow, he has an offer for a second career.
The Jets quarterback has been offered a starring role in a faith-based film by executive producer David Dginguerian. Dginguerian produced the 2012 religious film Crossroad (not to be confused with Crossroads, the 2002 film starring Britney Spears).
“I would like to extend...
