The Seahawks Have Named Geno Smith As Their Starting Quarterback

Geno Smith is a starting quarterback in the NFL, again.

On Friday, head coach Pete Carroll announced that Smith has won the quarterback competition over Drew Lock and will be the team’s starting quarterback for their Week 1 game against Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos.

Carroll made the announcement after the Seahawks 27-26 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in their preseason finale:

Smith was drafted by the New York Jets in 2013 Draft (39th overall). He spent four seasons with the Jets and then signed with the Seahawks in 2019 to backup Russell Wilson for three seasons. He re-signed in April on a one-year, $3.5 million deal.
