Brandon Marshall made it clear that he was in Geno Smith’s corner when he was traded to the New York Jets, and the talented wide receiver is staying true to his word.

Marshall seems to be the only person in the media or Jets locker room not searching for a reason to blame Geno Smith for getting his own jaw broken, via the New York Daily News.

“I was sitting right there and I would say this without going into too many details because we’ve already moved past it: Geno Smith did nothing wrong,” Marshall said on FOX TV Monday morning. “He did nothing wrong. … And that’s all I’m going to say about that because we have to move forward and I don’t want to be a distraction to our team, but Geno Smith did everything the right way.”

Smith is expected to miss 6-10 weeks after undergoing jaw surgery this week. Marshall may have added to the distraction simply by addressing it again.

“It was shocking,” Marshall said of the incident. “I’m very disappointed. I feel bad for [Geno], because he was doing really good. But we have to move forward if we want to win. Geno knows that.”

Marshall blamed Smith’s age and lack of consistency in the lineup for his teammates not fulling having his back.
