The New York Giants made the signing of former New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith official on Monday.

A 2013 second-round pick, Smith started in 29 games his first two seasons. He played in only three games with one start the last two seasons, and is currently still recovering from a torn ACL suffered in his only 2016 start.

“I think the opportunity to learn from (quarterbacks) coach (Frank) Cignetti, coach (Ben) McAdoo, and to be alongside Eli (Manning) and learn from him, a two-time Super Bowl champion and, in my opinion, a Hall of Fame quarterback,” Smith said in a statement released by the Giants. “I think it will work out tremendously for me. And it’s also an opportunity to be on a real good team, a winning team, get healthy – it’s just a perfect scenario for me. I couldn’t have written it up any better myself.”

Smith, 26, joins Josh Johnson as veteran backups for Eli Manning.
