NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Jets’ quarterback competition this summer will include Geno Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Matt Simms - and perhaps someone else not yet on the roster.

Coach Todd Bowles says during a conference call with season-ticket holders Thursday that the team’s three current quarterbacks will be in the competition “and we hope to add somebody else to compete with them.”

Smith has been the Jets’ starter the last two seasons, and Fitzpatrick was acquired from Houston last month to add a veteran presence but won’t be fully healthy until training camp after breaking a leg last season.

Bowles didn’t specify whether the Jets want to add a quarterback from the draft or free agency, but the team holds the No. 6 pick - and Oregon’s Marcus Mariota could be available.
