Seahawks' Geno Smith: Agrees to deal with Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith agreed to a one-year contract with the Seahawks on Thursday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Smith rejoins the team that employed him as a backup last season, though the assignment resulted in no snaps during the 2019 regular season. He should presumably return to that role, though undrafted rookie Anthony Gordon may also get a look in training camp.

Seahawks' Geno Smith: No snaps in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith didn't play an offensive snap for the Seahawks in 2019.

Russell Wilson hasn't missed a game since entering the league in 2012, and he continued that trend in 2019. That left Smith on the sidelines for the full season. Smith last started a game in 2017 for the Giants. Overall in his career, he's completed 57.7 percent of passes for 6,182 yards, 29 touchdowns and 36 interceptions while rushing for 661 yards and seven scores. The 29-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent in March.

Seahawks' Geno Smith: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (knee) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Smith had a strong preseason and has finally moved past a nagging knee injury. He'll dress as the backup to Russell Wilson in Sunday's season opener versus the Bengals after beating out Paxton Lynch for the No. 2 role. Wilson has proven incredibly durable through the first seven seasons of his career, not missing a single game due to injury.

Seahawks' Geno Smith: Re-signing with Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (knee) is re-signing with the Seahawks, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

Smith was cut Saturday to temporarily free up a roster spot. He's once again positioned as Russell Wilson's backup, with no other quarterbacks on the roster as of Sunday afternoon.

Geno Smith: Let loose by Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks released Smith (knee) on Saturday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

The news comes as a bit of a surprise, as Seattle released third-string quarterback Paxton Lynch on Friday, supposedly leaving Smith as the backup behind Russell Wilson. The Seahawks also released J.T. Barrett on Saturday, currently leaving Wilson as the only quarterback on the roster. Smith hasn't seen a large role under center since his first two seasons in the league. The 28-year-old started in 29 games and threw for 5,571 yards, 25 touchdowns and 34 interceptions for the Jets in 2013 and 2014. Smith has appeared in 10 games and passed for 611 yards, four touchdowns and two picks over the last four seasons.

Seahawks' Geno Smith: Will have knee evaluated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Pete Carroll called Smith's knee injury a "tweak," stating that the QB will need to have it examined in the coming days, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Smith,who had to exit Thursday's final preseason game with what appeared to be a minor knee injury, was able to stand on the sideline in pads after exiting. The team will have the knee looked at, but assuming the injury isn't serious, Smith is the strong favorite to begin the season as Russell Wilson's primary backup.

Seahawks' Geno Smith: Questionable to return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith suffered a knee injury during Thursday's preseason game against the Raiders and is questionable to return, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Smith was examined by team trainers immediately after suffering the injury, though he was spotted on the sideline shortly after with his helmet on, likely indicating that he's OK.

Seahawks' Geno Smith: Solid in extended action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith completed 11 of 18 passes for 117 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions and added 24 yards and a touchdown on six rushes in the Seahawks' 23-15 preseason win over the Chargers on Saturday.

Smith entered Saturday's contest on the final series of the first half and played the duration of the contest with Paxton Lynch (head) unavailable. The veteran performed well after missing last week's game following a cyst removal from his knee, and he made a direct contribution on the scoreboard with an eight-yard scoring scamper to cap off a 13-play, 69-yard drive in the third quarter. Smith seems set to go for the regular season, and he appears ready to enter as Russell Wilson's immediate backup.

Seahawks' Geno Smith: Suiting up Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that Smith (knee) will play in Saturday's preseason game against the Chargers, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Smith had a cyst in his knee removed last week that had forced him to miss time. Now that he's healthy and fellow backup Paxton Lynch is dealing with a head injury, it will be Smith and J.T. Barrett given the reigns for snaps behind Russell Wilson on Saturday.

Seahawks' Geno Smith: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (knee) is practicing Friday and could play in Sunday's preseason game against the Vikings, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Smith had a cyst in his knee removed last week and is back on the practice field after missing the last seven days. If Smith does end up being active for Sunday's exhibition, second-year quarterback J.T. Barrett likely will not get the opportunity to play.

Seahawks' Geno Smith: Minor knee procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith, who will have a cyst removed from his knee Friday, is expected to miss seven-to-10 days, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Smith's absence should free up added reps for fellow Russell Wilson backup Paxton Lynch. Additionally, it wouldn't surprise us if the Seahawks add another quarterback in advance of the team's second preseason tilt, Aug. 18 versus the Vikings.

Seahawks' Geno Smith: Getting start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will start Thursday's preseason contest against the Broncos, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

The Seahawks are holding out Russell Wilson in the exhibition opener, leaving Smith and Paxton Lynch to handle quarterback. After the game, Smith will have an injury addressed, per coach Pete Carroll. It isn't clear if Smith will require some sort of procedure, but Carroll expects the signal-caller to be ready in time for the team's second preseason game Aug. 18 in Minnesota, according to Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune. Assuming Smith reaches Week 1 with his health intact, he appears to be the leader for the backup job to Wilson.

Seahawks' Geno Smith: Reaches deal with Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith agreed to a contract Wednesday with the Seahawks, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Smith has spent time with the Jets, Giants and Chargers since being drafted in the second round back in 2013, but he hasn't been pressed into meaningful extended action since his failed stint as the Jets' starter in 2014. The 28-year-old comes to Seattle as high-profile candidate for the backup job to Russell Wilson, with Paxton Lynch looming as Smith's top competition for the gig.

Geno Smith: Garners interest from Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is scheduled to visit with the Seahawks on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com relayed earlier Monday that Smith was nearing agreement on a contract with Seattle, but the club will apparently sit down and meet with him first before drawing up terms on any deal. If Smith reaches agreement on a pact with Seattle, he would likely become the clear frontrunner to emerge as Russell Wilson's backup heading into 2019. Though he threw just four passes in 2018 as the backup to Philip Rivers in Los Angeles, Smith has logged 40 regular-season appearances in his career and sports a 29:36 TD:INT and 57.7 completion percentage over 906 attempts. Beyond Wilson, the only other quarterbacks on the Seahawks' roster are 2016 first-round bust Paxton Lynch and undrafted rookie Taryn Christion.

Chargers' Geno Smith: Enters game late in fourth quarter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith attempted one pass for eight yards and also carried the ball twice for minus-2 yards in the 38-14 win over the Browns on Sunday.

Smith entered the game midway through the fourth quarter with the win already well in hand. Given the success of Philip Rivers thus far (1,702 passing yards, 15 touchdowns, three interceptions), it would be stunning to see Smith earn significant playing time other than due to a major injury to the team's franchise quarterback.

Chargers' Geno Smith: Expected to be named backup QB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is expected to be named the backup quarterback after a preseason battle for the role with Cardale Jones, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

The 2013 second-round pick completed four of his six attempts for 16 yards in Thursday's 23-21 preseason win over the 49ers; hardly eye-popping totals, but the performance was evidently enough to solidify Smith's position as the No. 2 QB on the depth chart. Smith would be an intriguing fantasy option situated alongside a plethora of talented weapons such as Keenan Allen and Melvin Gordon, but given Philip Rivers has never missed a game since taking over as the starter 13 years ago, it's somewhat unlikely he'll get that opportunity in 2018.

Chargers' Geno Smith: Ugly outing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith completed seven of his 11 passing attempts for 45 yards and an interception in Saturday's 36-7 preseason loss to the Saints.

Locked in a heated battle with Cardale Jones for the backup position, Smith didn't do much to separate himself, tossing two pick-six interceptions, one of which was called back due to a penalty. The former Jets starter did enter Saturday's preseason game after Jones, but that decision seemed based more on getting the younger QB reps with the second unit as opposed an indication of the Chargers' preferred pecking order. Regardless of who wins the competition, neither player appears to be in a position to garner any sort of fantasy relevancy, considering Philip Rivers' excellent health throughout his career.

Chargers' Geno Smith: Plays nearly two quarters in preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith completed six of his eight passes for 85 yards and a touchdown, and also ran two times for 14 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Seahawks.

Smith was the first quarterback to relieve starter Philip Rivers, playing into the first drive of the second half. Given the competition with Cardale Jones has been neck-and-neck up until this point, it's telling that Smith was allowed to play almost a full two quarters, and looked well doing so. Week 4 will likely be the deciding factor as to who will earn the starting gig, but at least for now, Smith appears to have the upper hand.

Chargers' Geno Smith: Throws for 218 yards in Chargers debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was 14-of-23 passing for 218 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's preseason loss to Arizona.

Smith is battling Cardale Jones for the backup job to Philip Rivers. Jones got the start with Rivers sitting out. While Smith was more impressive, he faced the second- and third-string defenses. The backup quarterback role may not be decided until late in the preseason.

Chargers' Geno Smith: Comes to terms with Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith has reached an agreement with the Chargers on a one-year deal, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Smith played for the Giants in 2017, starting one game and completing 21-of-34 pass attempts for 212 yards and a touchdown. The move brings depth to the Chargers' quarterbacking corps, with an aging Philip Rivers now backed up by both Smith and Cardale Jones. Whether Smith or Jones will take over as the No. 2 remains to be determined.
