Various sources are reporting that former Jets QB Geno Smith is about to sign with the Giants and will backup Eli Manning.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter posted this earlier today on Twitter:

The signing is pending a physical that Smith will take over the weekend. Smith has been recovering from a torn ACL that was suffered last season.
Smith becomes the second ex-Jet to sign this off-season with the crosstown rivals as WR Brandon Marshall inked a deal on March 8th.
