Geno Smith has a pretty good pair of receivers in New York when he practices with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

But that’s nothing compared to the all-star cast he’s working out with in Miami during the offseason, as the Jets quarterback’s throwing it around with Pro Bowlers Odell Beckham, Antonio Brown, and Jarvis Landry.

Those three, along with cornerbacks including Minnesota’s Xavier Rhodes, would get together twice a week in Miami for informal workouts,working during the time they can’t be with their teams.

“A lot of it feels like it’s been made up by [Brown], but it’s some good stuff in there,” Landry said, via Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald. “A lot of footwork drills, get some one-on-ones against longer corners like Xavier Rhodes and guys like that.”

Coupled with the unexpected reps he’s getting in Jets OTAs while Ryan Fitzpatrick’s contract impasse drags on, and Smith’s getting plenty of work this offseason. He could use it, as his career has been uneven at best, and it’s unclear what the Jets will do with him when/if Fitzpatrick comes back.
