According to Seth Walder of the New York Daily News, Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith is in Florida and will not attend Mark Sanchez’s “Jets West” camp.
Geno Smith is working out in Florida and will not be attending Jets West, which began in southern California Thursday, according to a source. Smith’s presence at Mark Sanchez’s annual Jets West was a point of much speculation during minicamp and the weeks leading up to the training and team bonding event. Smith initially gave a “no comment” to whether he would attend the camp, sparking confusion and interest as to whether he would attend.
Smith has been working out in Florida and spoke to kids at his old high school, Miramar High School, on Wednesday. Smith will be staying in Florida through the weekend, according to the source.
Smith said during the spring that Sanchez didn’t invite him.
“Mark hasn’t officially extended the hand to me but I’m pretty sure there’s no problem there,” Smith said. “I’m more than willing to go there.”
I don’t blame Smith for not going. It’s not like it’s help Sanchez become a great quarterback.
