Hayden Smith Promoted to the Active Roster

Posted Oct 27, 2012

The incredible journey for rookie TE Hayden Smith continues. The 6’6”, 255-pound Australian, who never put on football pads until May, was promoted from the Jets practice squad to the active roster today.

To make room for Smith, the Jets released WR Jason Hill.

“Hayden’s doing awesome. He’s out there running the scout team and stuff, and he gives the defense nice little battles out there,” said Dustin Keller on “Jets Talk LIVE” this week. “He is such a big target and he has as good as hands as anybody. He catches everything thrown his way. With more and more work, I’m excited to see what he develops into.”

Media reports indicated the Jets worked out a couple of tight ends this week, but they didn’t make a move. So Smith got more work on the offense this week as opposed to only the scout team. And now after playing basketball at Division II Metropolitan State in Denver and starring in International Rugby, Hayden Smith may play in his first NFL game on Sunday.

Who's Singing the Anthem? You

Fans attending the Jets-Dolphins game need have their vocal cords warmed up for their star turn. You're making your debut singing the National Anthem before the 1 p.m. opening kickoff. All of you. For the first time ever, the Jets are asking all fans coming to the game to be in their seats early and be ready to come together as one voice and sing the anthem.
