Video: Geno Smith in read-option?
By James Walker
The New York Jets are in the middle of a two-man quarterback battle between incumbent Mark Sanchez and rookie Geno Smith. However, it appears the Jets could set up a package for Smith even if he doesn’t win the job.
New York is contemplating adding the increasingly popular read-option to its offense in 2013. New offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is bringing a West Coast offense to the Jets this year. New York does not have a lot of dynamic weapons -- meaning any creative ways to score points are welcome.
Will the read-option offense work in New York with Smith? ESPN’s "NFL Live" crew offers opinions.
