Fresh off a one-year contract with the New York Giants, Geno Smith is looking for a new home.
Per Darin Gantt, Smith met with the Los Angeles Chargers on Wednesday. The team is in search of someone to backup Philip Rivers. Should he sign, Smith would compete with Cardale Jones to be the backup.
Smith and San Diego head coach Anthony Lynn became familiar with each other when both were members of the Jets’ organization. That familiarity seems to have bred interest in Smith.
Smith could find himself in a similar situation to what he entered with the Giants should he sign with the Chargers. That is, sitting behind a veteran quarterback during the late stages of his career while hoping of the chance to take over once, in this case, Rivers retires.
With the free-agent quarterback market drying up fast, Smith remains unsigned, but could end up still landing in a fortuitous spot.
