Jason Smith heading back to the Jets

Mark Sanchez AP

This time, the Jets didn’t have to give anything for Jason Smith.

According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, the Jets are bringing back the former No. 2 overall pick in the draft.

They traded for the former Rams tackle last year, swapping out their own underperforming tackle Wayne Hunter for him. But he went to New Orleans this offseason, where he got a chance to compete for the starting left tackle job. It didn’t go well, and the Saints cut him yesterday.

Smith has looked acceptable at times, but hasn’t been able to approach justifying his draft status. But if all the Jets use him for is as an extra blocker in jumbo packages, he’s worth keeping around.

    All busts gravitate towards the Jets. They’re like the mother ship of failure.

    Number 63 has reported eligible. Story of the Sparano offense.

    On the Rotoworld mobile app the headline referred to him as a “swing” tackle.

    He aint got “swing” or game.

    This is great news and all but I think people really are more interested in who is going to be the starting QB, Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dum?

    Doing the same thing over and over expecting different results…

    Ugh, now everyone needs to take their #7 jerseys back to get a “G.” stitched on at the start.

    Sure he does. He swings open to allow the defense direct contact with the QB (and I used that term loosely).
