Jared Lorenzen is offering to fill in for Geno Smith as Jets QB
Wednesday August 12th, 2015

The Jets found themselves with a quarterback crisis after a locker room fight ended with Geno Smith missing up to 10 weeks with a broken jaw, but a Super Bowl-winning quarterback is offering his help.

​Former Kentucky quarterback and New York Giants backup Jared Lorenzen, aka “The Hefty Lefty” for his portly physique, jumped on Twitter to let the Jets know he could jump under center and look good doing it.

Lorenzen last played football in 2014 for the Northern Kentucky River Monsters of the Continental Indoor Football League, where he was listed at 320 pounds.

The plump player extended a similar offer to the Cardinals last season after Arizona suffered a series of injuries at quarterback.
