Smith told the West Virginia Gazette that he feels good about where he stands heading into training camp.

“I feel like I have a great shot. I did a pretty good job overall of just adapting to the [Jets’] system and playbook and felt very comfortable with it by the end of OTAs [outside team activities] and mandatory [mini-] camp [in May and June].’

Of course he does and he should.

He has much more leeway to operate with than Mark Sanchez does.

Even if he is not the Day One starter, Smith knows that in the wacky world of the Jets, he can be in the saddle by midseason with know looking back.

Smith stated his goals firmly.

I have a goal in mind and I’m really going to go after that. I want to be the best. It’s going to take time and effort and that’s what I’m willing to put in. Once I step on the field it’s about business. I’m really appreciative to have made it to this level, but there’s a lot more for me out there and I’m going to try and strive for it.”

Well his push to be the best is official as it was announced on Monday by the Jets that they have officially signed Smith to his rookie deal.
