On Tuesday, the Giants held a Gong Show tryout for 10 offensive linemen. On Wednesday, they invited an 11th lineman to town for a visit.
Per a league source, the Giants visited with tackle Jason Smith.
The second overall pick in the 2009 draft, Smith has been a relatively rare bust at the tackle position. The Rams traded him after three disappointing seasons to the Jets for right tackle Wayne Hunter. Smith appeared in all 16 games last season without a start.
Smith has been cut this year by the Saints and again by the Jets.
The Giants’ interest in Smith proves just how bad the situation is on the offensive line for the team in New York that was supposed to have a good one.
