If the rumors are true, the New York Jets are going to have fun with Geno Smith for years to come. Yesterday, Manish Mehta of New York Daily News reported that Smith recently fired his agent because of where he was drafted. Now, another story by Yahoo's Jason Cole has surfaced about Geno's attitude towards NFL coaches and front office personnel prior to the draft.
Two sources indicated that when Smith went on some visits to teams, rather than interact with coaches and front-office people, he would spend much of his time on his cell phone. Instead of being engaged with team officials, he would be texting friends or reading Twitter or a number of other distracting activities.
“All these other players who were in there were talking to the coaches, trying to get to know people and he was over there by himself,” one of the sources said. “That’s not what you want out of your quarterback.”
Even with the supposed media circus that was "TebowMania" gone, it looks like "GenoMania" will make things pretty entertaining this upcoming Jets season and beyond.
