Jets West kicking off; Geno Smith not in attendance

Geno Smith is not at Jets West camp yesterday and teammates are not even sure if he is coming, tweeted Kristian Dyer on Thursday morning.  Jake Steinberg later tweeted that he was in Florida yesterday.

According to Steinberg, Ryan Spadola, Vidal Hazelton, Clyde Gates, Thomas Mayo, Stephen Hill and Jordan White are the wide receivers in Jets West as of Thursday morning.

UPDATE (2:57pm ET) – A more recent image posted by Jordan White on Instagram would appear to show that Jeremy Kerley, Jeff Cumberland and Konrad Reuland are all in attendance, along with Chris Ivory who appeared in an image posted by Sanchez earlier today.

It could be argued how this looks on Geno both ways.  It could be said he’s not a team player, but it also could be said that he’s not subjecting himself to Sanchez.  More than anything this is a sign that this is a changing of the guard taking place.  Think back to the lockout year when a starting receiver without a resolved contract status with the team were in attendance.  Credit to the guys who showed up, but this is not the must-attend event it once was.  A sign of Sanchez’s decreasing cache among the team?
