Former Baylor Bear staple is cut by his second team in six mths
Could we use J. Smith in 2013 ? Just an idea !
Former 2nd overall pick from the 2009 NFL entry draft was cut by the New Orleans Saints today. Smith was beaten out by 3rd round pick of this year's draft in T. Armstead for the backup LT job in New Orleans. I have no idea if we are interested but honestly would it hurt to at least give the guy a tryout and see what he can do ? I know he has failed with the Rams and now with the Saints but we are getting pretty bare in the cupboard at OT in Charlotte these days. Smith may or may not be a total fit and I have no idea if we are considering him but hey it couldn't hurt he couldn't be as bad as the likes of what is currently on the roster at backup offensive tackles such as P. Brown, G. Chisolm, & N. Chandler. Smith would not cost that much if we indeed like what we saw from him. Rumors have us being linked to S. Locklear because of his ties to Gettleman from the Giants & the fact that he went to NC State. However he has a ton of wear on the tires and the Giants are keeping close tabs on him even more now that Diehl is going down for 4-6 weeks with a hand/thumb injury. I don't know if he is the answer but it is worth a shot to bring him in and at least see what he has and what he can do, I mean it couldn't hurt we are so thin on the offensive line right now.
