Jets Sign S Eric Smith

The New York Jets announced today they have signed their second pick of the third round, safety Eric Smith. The announcement was made by Jets' General Manager Mike Tannenbaum.

Smith, a 6-1, 209-pound product of Michigan State University, was selected in the third round with the 97th overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft. The pick was awarded to the Jets as a compensatory selection.

Smith, a native of Groveport, OH, played in 23 games over the past two seasons, while posting over 100 tackles in both campaigns. His 101 tackles in his senior campaign ranked first and his two interceptions ranked second on the Spartans. His 323 career tackles rank 13th in school history, and posted 13 games with double-digit tackles as a Spartan.
