The latest on those crazy Jets..
- Although Geno Smith hasn’t made a final decision, the early indication is that the Jets quarterback won’t pursue a civil suit against IK Enemkpali, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News tweets. However, a source told Josina Anderson of ESPN.com (Twitter link) that nothing has been ruled out.
- The Jets and Michael Vick‘s agent had a conversation about the potential of him re-joining the team in Geno Smith’s absence, Rand Getlin of NFL.com tweets. However, both parties determined that it wasn’t in their best interests to resume their professional relationship (link).
- Smith’s jaw will heal, but he’ll have hard time recovering from this mess, Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com writes. Even coach Todd Bowles had to admit that Smith won’t be getting the job back if Ryan Fitzpatrick or whoever the team’s QB is to start the year is successful. “If the other guy is playing well and the boat is going right and there are no waves, and everything is going and we’re 4, 5, 6, 7-0, yeah, you’re not coming back to start,” Bowles said.
- Smith’s future with Jets may be in jeopardy now that he’s sidelined for 6-10 weeks, Mehta writes.
