Seahawks Officially Sign QB Geno Smith To One-Year Deal


The Seattle Seahawks announced Wednesday that they’ve officially signed QB Geno Smith to a one-year contract. 

Jeremy Fowler reports that the Seahawks and QB Geno Smith have agreed to a one-year contract on Thursday. 

According to Bob Condotta, the Seahawks could be nearing a deal soon to bring back QB Geno Smith as their backup quarterback.

Smith was Seattle’s No. 2 last year and the only other quarterback the Seahawks have behind Russell Wilson is undrafted rookie Anthony Gordon, so this move would make a lot of sense. 

Smith, 28, 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 before signing a one-year contract worth $2 million with the Giants in 2017.

Smith later signed a one-year deal with the Chargers for the 2018 season before joining the Seahawks last May. Seattle released him at the start of the season before immediately re-signing him. 

In 2018, Smith appeared in four games for the Chargers and completed 1 of 4 pass attempts for eight yards while also losing a fumble.
