An inside look at the Jets' QB options

With his rookie campaign complete, New York Jets gunslinger Geno Smith could very well have some competition to deal with during training camp. Find out what options the front office will be mulling heading into the offseason.

As the NFL playoffs continue and now we have reached the Conference Finals for both AFC and NFC, it should be interesting to see who will arrive in the New York City Area for this year's Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium. But while we are curious to know who will arrive for the coldest Super Bowl in NFL history, you as a Jets fan have concerns about the upcoming draft this May.

The No. 1 concern has always been the quarterback position because some might think it's solidified, yet others are not convinced that the answers are already there. But after his first full season at the position Geno Smith might have given a few answers, but there could be more questions.

So here is the dilemma. What should the Jets do once free agency begins? Should they try to bring in a free agent quarterback or make a trade, because once the Jets make a trade for a quarterback or one through free agency that would mean there is competition for Smith? Or do you sit him down and allow him to watch what's going on?

Some of you were probably wondering if the Jets could bring over Jay Cutler from the Bears, but as you already know he has re-signed with the team. But maybe the Jets can do a draft day trade with the Washington Redskins if they think Robert Griffin III will be the full time starter, so try and bring over Kirk Cousins if the package is sweet enough to pull the trigger.

Or should the Jets trade up and get into the Johnny Manzell race and try to bring him over to make things interesting. You heard or read the comments by Smith when he said he knew there will be a quarterback competition next season and he doesn't think his job is safe.

Give Smith credit for acknowledging that his starting position isn't safe and that means he is ready to come into camp this coming summer depending on what the Jets will do on the free agent side of things or making a trade to bring someone over. This past season is something to build on because the Jets have a serious task in building the offense.

For the last several drafts the Jets have taken a lot of players on the defensive side of the ball and as of right now the front seven is looking strong and solid, but this coming May the Jets have a major need for offensive players to fill a lot of holes and hopefully John Idzik makes the right choices.
