The team announced they had signed former No. 2 overall pick Jason Smith to a one-year contract.
Smith was a bust with the Rams after their 2009 draft investment, and never really made a peep with the Jets after being traded for Wayne Hunter.
The Saints haven’t replaced free agent departure Jermon Bushrod, leaving Charles Brown and Zach Strief as the starters.
Smith’s a depth signing at this point, and the Saints have been looking closely at the tackles in this year’s draft.
