Seahawks Restructure Geno Smith's Contract

Thursday, February 22, 7:02 PM

The Seattle Seahawks restructured quarterback Geno Smith's contract on Thursday, converting his $9.6 million roster bonus into a signing bonus and creating $4.8 million in 2024 salary cap space, according to a source. The Seahawks made the call to bring Smith back for the 2024 season when they decided to keep him on the roster in the middle of this month when his $12.7 million base salary became guaranteed. Seattle could move on from the 33-year-old veteran next year if he disappoints in 2024, as he won't have any guarantees in the final year of his deal. Smith regressed a bit after a career year in 2022 with the Seahawks, and he finished with 3,624 passing yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 15 starts. Expecting him to return to his 2022 level would be foolish, although Smith can pass as a high-end QB2 as long as he stays healthy in 2024.

Giants Add Matt Barkley To Active Roster

Wednesday, November 8, 12:17 PM

The New York Giants signed quarterback Matt Barkley from the practice squad to their active 53-man roster on Wednesday. Daniel Jones (knee) suffered a season-ending torn ACL in the Week 9 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, and the team also placed veteran Tyrod Taylor (ribs) on Injured Reserve last weekend. Taylor will miss at least the next three games, but there's a chance he may not play again this year. The G-Men are moving forward with undrafted rookie Tommy Devito under center for the time being, but the 33-year-old Barkley could eventually be making starts for the Giants before the season is over. It's a dire QB situation for New York to be in, and it will be a major downgrade for all of their offensive weapons in fantasy, mainly running back Saquon Barkley.
