Geno Smith is expected to get the start at quarterback when the Seattle Seahawks open the preseason this weekend against Pittsburgh, coach Pete Carroll said. Smith has been the leader in the competition with Drew Lock to be Seattle’s starting QB throughout the offseason and will get the nod for the first of the three preseason games. Lock played well during Seattle’s mock game over the weekend leading the No. 2 offense against the Seahawks starting defense. But it was Smith that was with the No. 1 offense when practice resumed.
Coach Sean McVay says he has finalized his contract extension with the Los Angeles Rams. McVay and the Rams didn’t reveal the terms of the long-expected deal but the youngest coach to win a Super Bowl reaffirmed his commitment to Los Angeles after practice in training camp at UC Irvine.

He has been the youngest coach in the NFL throughout his tenure.
Los Angeles Chargers coach Brandon Staley missed Tuesday’s practice in order to be with his youngest son, who was having surgery to treat a fractured toe and possible infection.

The Chargers have their first preseason game Saturday when they host the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams.
Taysom Hill is giving the New Orleans Saints’ new coaching regime the benefit of the doubt. The former BYU quarterback doesn’t deny his disappointment over no longer being on the QB track with his NFL club. But Hill says he also sees the wisdom in the Saints’ decision to shift his focus to the more physical tight end spot. Hill says the Saints' desire to maximize his versatility “makes perfect sense" and also satisfies his desire to see a lot of action on game days. Saints first-year head coach Dennis Allen says Hill has “reacted incredibly well” to the change. But Allen also notes that Hill's role won't change much from most of his five-year stint in New Orleans.
