Geno Smith’s Roommate Is Who?
Geno Smith has had a different No.1 wide receiver every year he's been with the New York Jets, so he has decided to take a new approach to build chemistry. He is now living with his newly acquired wide receiver Brandon Marshall.
The duo have a close relationship and met in South Florida to work out shortly after the Jets acquired Marshall from the Chicago Bears back in March. After that Marshall decided to move into Smith's New Jersey residence, since then Marshall has had nothing but good things to say about the third year quarterback. “I was just blown away by his maturity and how much he knows,” he said. “This kid is really smart. The sky is the limit for him.”
Marshall had a rough go around with his last quarterback in Chicago in Jay Cutler, so he understands how important chemistry is, and realizes they're behind the curve.
“This is a first-year offense,” Marshall said. “If you guys are expecting me to be a [1,500]-yard receiver, that’s high expectations. If you’re expecting Geno Smith to go out there and crush it, I don’t know how possible that is. It’s a first-year offense with new guys, new faces. We’re behind the eight ball. We have to put in extra work to catch up to those guys that have been together five, six, seven years.”
