According to NFL Media, the former Jets QBwill take a physical with the team over the weekend and likely sign Monday. The 26-year-old will be brought in to compete for the backup quarterback position behind Eli Manning with Keith Wenning and Josh Johnson.
Smith had a roller-coaster of a career with the Jets, starting off with two poor seasons. His next two seasons were cut short due to injury, and he hasn't had a chance to show if he's progressed as a passer.
Now, he'll get a chance to study under Manning, although it's unclear how long his contract will end up being. If nothing else, the Giants will get a quarterback with at least some playing experience behind Manning in case the starter suffers an injury.
Smith reportedly had interest from other teams, including the Chargers and Browns.
