    Geno Smith fires agent

    Y! SPORTS


    I know agents can certainly promote players and help get them the best deals possible, but ultimately, isn't Geno responsible for Geno not making the first round?

    I would say so. Agent is good for getting you paid once you are drafted.

    According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Smith was under the impression that he should be and would be the No. 1 overall pick of the draft.

    Can't wait to see another Jet QB crash and burn.

    If I was his agent, I may consider this a blessing. That guy is a *******.

    Geno just seems like a guy that thinks everything else around him is the problem but not him...

    I said it before, and I will continue to say it. The Jets are a perfect fit for Geno's ego. I wish them the best together...

    Re: Geno Smith fires agent

    He might have a legit gripe depending upon what his agent told him going up into the draft. If the agent was blowing smoke up his ***, I think that would be a decent reason to fire someone.

    Re: Geno Smith fires agent

    I could see expecting to be the 1st QB picked, or expecting to go in the 1st round, or even expecting to be a high pick, but if was expecting to be #1 overall his agent was either lying to him about a trade or he had no exposure to any draft coverage. I barely follow off-season NFL and even I knew there was know way KC was taking a QB with that pick.

    Can't wait to see him flop in NY without Austin to throw to. There's a reason Tavon went in the first round I Geno didn't.

    Yeah, now obviously he should have known better, but if his agent were filling his head with ******** that'd be a pretty good reason to let him go.
