Geno Smith deleted a tweet that drew attention during the week.
Smith on Thursday replied on Twitter to a tweet asking why he hasn’t gotten more time as a starting quarterback in the NFL.
“We all know what it is.. but the reality I live with when I wake up is all that matters to me..
my whole life a dream I can’t thank God enough,” Smith wrote.
The tweet drew attention from a Seahawks writer who suggested Smith was implying that race was the reason he hasn’t gotten more time as a starting quarterback.
Smith has since deleted the tweet.
Smith was a second-round pick (No. 39 overall) by the New York Jets in 2013.
He got to start for the Jets in his first two seasons and the team went 11-18 in his starts.
Smith has since spent time with the Giants, Chargers and now the Seahawks as a backup.
He has only played sparingly since 2015.
If there is any wonder why Smith hasn’t gotten more time as a starter, it’s because he isn’t starter quality.
