Update on our report last night, the Jets are going to be adding safety depth, but it’s not official yet.
Per Manish Mehta, free agent safety DeAngelo Smith is visiting with the Jets this weekend and is expected to sign with the team. As we reported last night, he was last in the league with the Cleveland Browns in 2010.
He will add depth to a weak safety position if he makes the team this summer.

He remembers Mark Gastineau's late hit in the 1986 AFC Divisional Playoff game like it was yesterday. There have been many more failures than successes, but through it all, Alan has remained true to the Gang Green. He has been blogging for the Jets on various websites for the past 5-6 years. He lives and breathes the NY Jets all year round, and is committed to bringing the Jets passion to "The Jet Press" on a daily basis.
