Smith is expected to take a physical this weekend with the Giants, and if everything goes well could sign with the team on Monday, Schefter reported.
The team is re-signing Josh Johnson to a two-year deal, his agent Doug Hendrickson announced Friday on Twitter. If nothing else, the Giants will get a quarterback with at least some playing experience behind Manning in case the starter suffers an injury.
Smith had a roller-coaster of a career with the Jets, starting off with two poor seasons. Smith could be viewed as a developmental project with Manning set to turn 37 this season.
Enemkpali, claiming Smith owed him $600, fractured the quarterback's jaw with a punch to the face. Ryan Nassib held that job for years and he stinks at football. The 2017 NFL Draft has several quarterbacks who might not be high-round draft picks, but still have traits that could merit consideration on the third day. I want to win so badly, deep inside of me. They were in the playoffs previous year and their defense got pretty damn good. Smith started all 16 games as a rookie in 2013 and started 13 games in 2014 for the Jets. He underwent surgery last November, vowing to be ready for training camp. He struggled with turnovers, as he threw 36 interceptions - one every 24 pass attempts.
Smith, 26, met with the Jets earlier this week and was said to be excited with what he saw during the visit.
