Geno expects to attend Jets West

There was some premature hubbub Wednesday about whether or not Geno would attend Jets West, but it sounds as if the whole thing was overblown.

“We haven’t talked about it, but from my understanding its something that’s done annually and all the guys go out there and it’s been a great experience,” Smith told reporters on Thursday. “Mark hasn’t officially extended the hand to me but I’m pretty sure there’s no problem there.”

Sanchez had told reporters on Wednesday that like prior years, everyone was invited.

Any potential controversy here was manufactured and it’s right that Mark will invite him and it’s right that Geno attends.  Anything else would be a lose-lose proposition for one or both of the quarterbacks. We’re glad that the offense will get a few more chances to work together before the start of training camp … we get the feeling it’s needed based on some of the bumps in the road during the spring sessions.
