The New York Jets came to terms with wide receiver Jeff Smith on Monday, signing the speedster to a one year deal. Smith was an exclusive rights free agent, but will return to a Jets team with a new coach, and most likely a new quarterback in the fall.
Smith saw his role on offense increase in 2020. He saw action on 318 offensive snaps and 37 on special teams. He finished the season 17 catches for 167 yards in 2020, albeit on a team with not a lot of weapons on offense.
The former Boston College wide out came to Chestnut Hill in college as a quarterback, and played underneath the center in the disastrous 2015 season. In 2016 he was moved to wide receiver, where he found much more success with 27 catches for 395 yards and three touchdowns. In 2017 he had 25 catches for 295 yards, and 2018 he had arguably his best year with six receiving touchdowns. Steve Addazio's offense utilized his speed in a variety of way, as Smith was also used extensively in the run game, on end around and misdirection plays.
