Jason Smith was the number two pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. He has been a solid player for the St. Louis Rams, but he has not set the world on fire. However, he gets a chance to help a brand new team as the New York Jets have made a deal to acquire the right tackle, which should shore up their weakest link.
See, Jason Smith needed a change of scenery. The Jets needed a right tackle not named Wayne Hunter and they actually get rid of him in the deal. This looks like it could work from both sides. The Rams get a different failed tackle that could benefit from a change of scenery. This deal might work or it could be a swap of crap for crap. Exciting!
This will not end all of the issues that the Jets have on offense. They seem to lack a bunch of playmakers and that is the big issue. The one quarterback is a wreck because everyone loves his backup. His backup is a wreck because he simply can not throw the football. Throw in a lack of wideouts and an overrated running back and you have a giant mess on the offensive side of the ball.
This move will help, because I believe that Smith will tap into the talent that made him a high draft pick. If he fails to do that, the Jets are going to struggle. In fact, they will probably struggle even with Smith but at least they are trying to improve the team.
