    Smith has recovered from a broken fibula suffered during training camp. Several NFL teams have made inquiries about  Smith.
    Smith has run the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds with a 40-inch vertical leap and bench pressed 225 pounds 19 times.
    The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder excels in press coverage and is a converted wide receiver. He played wide receiver for the Carolina Panther and Seattle Seahawks.
    Smith converted to cornerback at the suggestion of Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, who recruited him as a cornerback out of high school when Carroll was at USC. Smith wound up playing for Arizona State as a receiver.

    then that opens up an active roster spot, correct?  wonder who gets promoted from PS.

    this makes more sense.  sounds like a physically gifted prospect, but we need immediate help, not another CB project, on the roster

    Agreed.  Gotta like the prospect based on how well we've done molding Allen though.

    And who's this kid Adams that played and got smoked @ CB last weekend ?

    We also lost Jeremiah George ILB after the Jags signed him off our P.S..

    I knew we would lose several drafted (12) player's off our P.S.. You can't hide everyone.

    Go Jets...Cyborg
