Geno Smith In The Team's Plans For Now

Wednesday, February 28, 12:25 AM

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider said on Tuesday that quarterback Geno Smith is the team's starter "until he's not," when asked whether Smith is the team's starter "right now." Smith is coming off an uneven 2023 season and has two years left on his three-year, $75 million deal he signed last March. His $12.7 million base salary for next season became fully guaranteed when the team kept him on their roster past Feb. 16. However, it's believed Seattle would still think about a possible trade. If they were to trade Smith, they'd assume $27 million in dead money, but a new team could acquire him for only $12.9 million next season. The 33-year-old won Comeback Player of the Year in 2022 but was merely average last season. If Smith isn't traded, he'll remain Seattle's starting QB entering the 2024 season and will be best viewed as a QB2 in fantasy.

Trevor Lawrence Can't Lift Jags To Playoff Appearance

Sunday, January 7, 6:27 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence (shoulder, finger) threw for 280 yards, two touchdowns, and two picks off 29-for-43 passing in Sunday's loss to the Titans. He added three carries for 10 yards. This wasn't Lawrence's worst showing of his career. However, it wasn't good enough to get the Jaguars into the postseason. The signal-caller has battled various injuries throughout the year, so it's possible they were the cause of some of his mishaps. At any rate, Lawrence took a significant step back this season. He threw four fewer touchdowns than he did a season ago and also nearly doubled his number of picks. The former Clemson Tiger has some work to do, especially since his days as a starting quarterback could be coming to an end if he doesn't get his act together next season.
