Kellen Winslow Jr.’s Four-Game Suspension Puts More Pressure On Geno Smith
The New York Jets showed this past Monday that they were the real deal with a convincing come-from-behind victory on the road against the Atlanta Falcons. In fact, it was a total coming out party for rookie quarterback Geno Smith, who threw three touchdowns and followed up his turnover-riddled Week 4 performance with a zero-giveaway night.
Unfortunately, one of Smith’s primary targets this season has been Kellen Winslow Jr. and he isn’t going to be in a Jets’ uniform until the first week of November. The NFL punished Winslow with a four-game suspension after he tested positive for his use of performance enhancing drugs. An effective tight end is key for the maturation of any young signal-caller and Winslow’s absence will be noticed for Rex Ryan‘s team.
However, this is just another example of Smith having his back against the wall once again. If this rookie has taught us anything, it’s that Smith has the mindset of a 10-year NFL veteran instead of a kid fresh out of the collegiate ranks, so let’s not call Winslow’s suspension the end of the world just yet.
