New York Jets have had several underwhelming seasons since they went to back to back AFC Championship Games at the end of the 2009 and 2010 NFL seasons.

Those were the days for former head coach Rex Ryan, but now former Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles is in charge, and players who thought their jobs were safe under Ryan are now under pressure now that Bowles is in New York.

One of those players that has come under fire this offseason is last year's starting quarterback, Geno Smith.

Speaking today at an AFC-wide coaches' press conference, Todd Bowles broached the subject of Geno's job security and he issued a stern warning 

Bowles was also quizzed about what the Jets plan to do with their sixth overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, with the Jets predicted to select Marcus Mariota by some draft experts. Furthermore, Bowles does say that his team "will draft a quarterback if one is available."

"Asked about a possible trade at No. 6, Bowles says he’s “open to the best player available.” As for a trade, jokes he’ll take multiple 1sts," Rapoport tweeted on Tuesday.

What do Jets fans think their team should do with their sixth overall pick and should Geno Smith be the number one for Gang Green? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
