According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, Jets head coach Rex Ryan told the media that they might develop a read-option package for rookie quarterback Geno Smith even if he’s not the starter.
Ryan said they could have a read-option package for Geno Smith even if he's the backup. Kinda like the … uh, Tebow plan. #Jets

It does sound like they want to use Smith the way they planned to use Tebow last year. The funny thing is that Smith is more a pocket passer than a mobile quarterback.
