SEAHAWKS ‘RUSSELL WILSON MESSAGES HIS MID FINGER, RELEASES NFL FANS QUEASY
This was Smith’s first touchdown pass since Smith started in 2011 in place of Eli Manning against the then Oakland Raiders for the New York Giants. In that game, he had 21-of-34 with 212 passing yards and touchdown passes. Unfortunately, the Giants will lose that game and it will be Smith’s last start.
The New York Jets selected Smith from West Virginia in 2011. He started playing games for the Jets but could not make enough impact to retain his job. He will find himself with the Giants in 2017, the Los Angeles Chargers in 2018 and the Seahawks in 2019.
