Report: Geno Smith fires his agents

After experiencing a precipitous freefall at the draft, Geno Smith reportedly has fired his agents due to "displeasure over his draft position."

Geno Smith reportedly dropped over character, leadership concerns

Geno Smith went from being an anticipated top-10 pick in the NFL Draft to slipping to the second round where he was selected 39th overall by the New York Jets.

Tim Tebow is first casualty of Geno Smith to Jets

  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. None...
