Saints sign Offensive Tackle Jason Smith

Posted: Updated:

The Saints signed offensive tackle Jason Smith today to a one-year deal

The fifth year pro was the 2nd overall pick in 2009 to the St. Louis Rams, but since, has been labeled a "draft-day bust" by many sites. This is due to his concussion issues and his struggle in pass protection.

He spent three years with the Rams before serving as a backup last year to the New York Jets.

Smith is expected to come in and compete for the starting Left Tackle position. Former Saint, Pro-Bowl tackle Jermon Bushrod, signed with the Chicago Bears earlier this offseason.
