Geno Smith got his jaw broken over a mere $600 that he owed teammate IK Enemkpali. Imagine that – Smith put his job and future with the Jets on the line over a mere $600. According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, Geno Smith had initially agreed to attend a charity event hosted by Enemkpali in July, but then backed out at the last minute, allegedly due to the death of a friend. Enemkpali wanted to be reimbursed for the flight and limo – about $600.
Smith didn’t pay quickly enough, the two exchanged words, and then Enemkpali slugged him.
Both parties screwed up. Geno, you’re a millionaire. You carry $600 around in your wallet. Pay the dude. And IK, my man – chill with the temper.
Ryan Fitzpatrick is the Jets’ new starter at QB. There’s no telling if he’ll relinquish the starting job by the time Smith is eating solid food.
