Geno Smith the unquestioned starter for Jets-- Wed May 20 5:43 pm --
No QB controversy for Jets entering 2015
FLORHAM PARK — There will be no Jets quarterback competition this summer: offensive coordinator Chan Gailey on Wednesday said Geno Smith would be the team's starter heading into the regular season.
"Right now, Geno's the starter," Gailey said. "Unless something happens—an injury, or something like that, that you don't perceive, that's how we anticipate it going."
FF Today's Take:Although veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was brought in to be a capable backup, HC Todd Bowles is sticking to his plan by naming Geno Smith his starting quarterback. Geno Smith finished the 2014 regular season averaging a paltry 180 passing yards per game. New OC Chan Gailey will be tasked with getting more out of the Jet's passing game this season.

Texans receive late-round conditional draft pick in 2016
The Houston Texans traded quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to the New York Jets for a late-round conditional draft pick in 2016, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The Texans will get a conditional seventh-round pick that can become a sixth based on how much playing time Fitzpatrick gets with the Jets.
FF Today's Take:With Houston re-signing Ryan Mallett and working on a deal with Brian Hoyer, Fitzpatrick became expendable. Fitzpatrick and Jets' offensive coordinator Chan Gailey are familiar with each from their time in Buffalo. Fitzpatrick is expected to battle Geno Smith in camp but we'd give the nod to the veteran at this point in time.
