Jets QB Geno Smith, commenting for the first time since the end of the season, got testy with a reporter when asked if he wants Ryan Fitzpatrick to re-sign. "That's up to the front office and Ryan Fitzpatrick," Smith said. "Why would I speak on that?" Smith cut off the reporter's follow-up questions.
