NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Smith was fined for yelling an expletive at Jets fans last Sunday, according to a source. The exchange was caught by CBS 2 in New York. The fine amount is the same that Johnny Manziel was fined for flashing a middle finger during a Cleveland Browns preseason game.
Smith is under the most scrutiny of his young career. He was hardly the Jets' only problem last week, but it wasn't encouraging that he played his worst late in the game. He has bristled at questions this week regarding Michael Vick's role on the team. The Jets have a very difficult task facing the Chargers in San Diego on Sunday, and Smith may not have Eric Decker available. Geno is getting used to playing without a stacked deck supporting him.
