New York Jets general manager John Idzik isn’t ready to commit to Geno Smith as their starting quarterback for next season.

“We’re all excited about having Geno as part of the Jets but we will always look to improve every position in any manner we can and that doesn’t change going into 2014,” said Idzik via the New York Daily News. “We’ll look at quarterbacks, yes we’ll look at quarterbacks.”

He was asked if Smith will be their starter going into training camp.

“We don’t look too far into the future with that. Again, Geno started 16 games for us. You all witnessed how he did, how he finished strong. We’re very, very excited and happy that Geno is with us,” said Idzik.

Idzik does sound like he’s happy with what he saw from Smith.

“He’s a very resilient young man,” Idzik said. “For him to start all 16 games, go through the highs and lows of an NFL season and just to see him develop as a player, see him handle a game, see him be more efficient in the pocket, his accuracy, threatening with his legs, all of the things that he did, they were very positive.”

The fact that the Jets only used a second round pick on Smith and not a first round pick,  they can go out again and draft another signal caller if they want.
