Jets | Braylon Edwards praises Geno Smith
Fri, 26 Jul 2013 14:46:32 -0700
New York Jets WR Braylon Edwards has been extremely impressed with rookie QB Geno Smith in the first few days of training camp. "It's going to be a battle," Edwards said of the Jets' quarterback competition. "Mark can't make mistakes like he has in the past. Things have to be legit with Mark for him to be the starter because he has a legit guy knocking at the back door." Smith showed a big arm during practice Friday, July 26.
As if the Jets needed anything else to stir the pot in what should be a heated quarterback competition in training camp. Smith will still need to outperform Sanchez in camp, which might not be terribly tough to do, in order to win the starting job. We still feel Sanchez is the favorite, but if he struggles early in the season, don't be surprised if Rex Ryan has a quick trigger. It's not wise to own either of these QBs as a backup for fantasy purposes.
