During his stint in St. Louis, running back Steven Jackson had three 1,000-yard rushing seasons and quarterback Sam Bradford passed for 3,512 yards as a rookie.

In New York, Smith served at times as a tackle-eligible tight end, a position New Orleans' offense also uses routinely.

Re: Saints sign Jason Smith, OT

Nice to read an optimistic post! I agree, it's a low risk-big reward type of signing, plus you gotta think of the motivation of having a chance to play for the all mighty SP and the Saint's vaunted offence in their comeback year. Not sure what this means for the draft, I feel like we will still take the BPA...hoping that's an explosive OLB!

I really don't think Jason Smith plays even a minuscule part in what way we decide to go in the draft. Right now he's just another camp body on a non-guaranteed contract.

Its the equivalent of signing some nobody off another teams practice squad, if that.

I hope no one assumes the front office views this as the answer to our OT problems.

I personally see Ivory as a more movable player, and the benefit of packaging him in a trade would be that his whole $2M would come off the books without any dead money.

Re: Saints sign Jason Smith, OT

no long injury history? that would be a step in the right direction.

after going in the first round to a backup might have kicked some sense into him.

another solid high reward move with a medium risk factor due to his starting experience

He may be a steal remember Bushrod and Jarmmal Brown was decent tackles Drew made them in to Pro bowlers the way he moves in the pocket.
