Browns & Chargers Could Be Options For QB Geno Smith?

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that free agent QB Geno Smith‘s recent meeting with the Giants went “extremely well.

While Smith is looking for an opportunity to compete for a starting job in 2017 he would be willing to take a backup job if that is all that ends up being available to him this offseason.

According to Rapoport, there are two other options for Smith outside of the Giants including the Browns and Chargers.

The Browns could give them the ability to compete for a starting job, but he would obviously be a backup to Philip Rivers in Los Angeles.

However, Mary Kay Cabot mentions that she is “not getting the vibe” that the Browns have any interest in Smith.

Some have wondered if a return to the Jets could still be an option for Smith, considering that they’ve missed out on a few quarterbacks since the market opened.

Smith, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Jets back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $5.019 million contract and is now in testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career.

In 2016, Smith appeared in two games and completed 8-of-14 passes (57.1 percent) for 126 yards, one touchdown and an interception.
