The Seattle Seahawks announced Wednesday that they’ve officially signed QB Geno Smith to a contract.
Smith met with the Seahawks earlier in the week and reports said that he was expected to sign Seattle, so this isn’t a big surprise.
The Seahawks will go into this summer with Smith and Paxton Lynch competing for the backup job to Russell Wilson.
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.
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.
