The struggling Smith acknowledges Monday that he hasn't lived up to his own expectations during a mostly rocky first NFL season in which the Jets have gone 6-8.
The second-round draft pick, who has 10 touchdowns and 21 interceptions, says he expects to be in ''full competition with myself and every other guy who's in camp.''
Smith was in a close competition with Mark Sanchez this preseason, but became the Jets' starter after Sanchez suffered a season-ending shoulder injury.
Smith, whose 2,642 yards passing are a franchise rookie record, says ''we'll see'' when asked if he has proven to the front office that he should be the starting quarterback next season.
