Todd Bowles: 'Geno Smith must play well to keep first-team spot'

New York Jets coach Todd Bowles warns quarterback Geno Smith to be at his best this season.

New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith will have to stay in form if he wants to keep his starting spot, according to coach Todd Bowles.

Offensive coordinator Chan Gailey confirmed that Smith will start ahead of new signing Ryan Fitzpatrick, but Bowles warned him that he must remain at his best.

He told reporters: "Come camp time there will be competition at the spot. I've said it from day one, Geno is the first-team quarterback and Ryan is second, Matt [Simms] is third and we'll give Bryce [Petty] reps as we go.

"Just like every other position starter starting first team, if he's playing well he's the starter, if he's not playing well and somebody is playing better, as is any other position, somebody else is going to play."

Smith threw 13 touchdowns and 13 interceptions last season.
