EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants are giving former Jets quarterback Geno Smith a chance to learn from Eli Manning.

The Giants on Monday announced they had signed Smith and cornerback Valentino Blake, who also excels on special teams.

A second-round draft choice out of West Virginia in 2013, Smith has been a bust after a good rookie season. He missed most of last season after surgery for an ACL injury in October.

Smith believes he can learn from Manning, a two-time Super Bowl MVP, and develop under coach Ben McAdoo and quarterbacks coach Frank Cignetti.
