Geno Smith chose not attend Mark Sanchez’s Jets West Passing Camp, and may have fired a salvo at Sanchez by making such a decision.
USA Today is reporting that Smith chose not to attend Sanchez’s team bonding get together, and will instead workout on his own in Florida.

Smith previously tried to sidestep the issue of Jets West when asked by reporters during a previous minicamp.
“We haven’t talked about it, but from my understanding it’s something that’s done annually and all the guys go out there and it’s been a great experience,” Smith previously had said. “Mark hasn’t officially extended the hand to me, but I’m pretty sure there’s no problem there. I’m more than willing to go there.”
The question will now be asked, is this Smith letting Sanchez know where he stands in regards to their quarterback competition, or did Smith, simply want to work and refine his game and mechanics all by his lonesome?
