Jaylon Smith signs to Giants practice squad, is expected to play Sunday

USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys are set for a reunion with linebacker Jaylon Smith this weekend, but he’ll be wearing a different uniform this time.

Smith signed with the Giants’ practice squad on Friday. The Giants host the Cowboys on Sunday and Ed Werder of ESPN reports that Smith is expected to play as they deal with health issues in their linebacking corps.

Smith was a 2016 second-round pick in Dallas and did not play during his rookie season because of a severe knee injury suffered in college. He remained with the Cowboys until he was released in early October,  signed with the Packers a short time later and appeared in two games before they released him as well.

Smith has 517 tackles, nine sacks, two interceptions, six forced fumbles, and five fumble recoveries in 70 career games.

  1. I will gladly accept whatever intelligence on the Cowboys he can provide; however, I wish him success for his own career going forward.

  2. Ah, the old bring a former player in for “intelligence”. He will be with the Jints for approximately 2 weeks fore they cut him loose. Him outliving his usefulness.

  3. What could a former player tell you that tape can’t? I mean division rivals KNOW one another Inside And Out! What is Jaylon going to tell you? Ahh watch for Parsons Gregory and Dlaw kicking your arse……. Uh thanks we KNOW this bro….. but what Don’t We Know about Dallas?

  4. “Smith has 517 tackles, nine sacks, two interceptions, six forced fumbles, and five fumble recoveries in 70 career games”

    That is a lot of production and he is still young. I realize Parsons made him irrelevant for Dallas, but what’s keeping him from landing a secure spot with the many teams in need of LB help?

  5. If you’re looking for intelligence from Smith, you’re looking the wrong way. Know how many assignments he blew?

  6. Great….let’s isolate him on a RB over and over and over again. 10 receptions…200 yards.
