Free agent T Jason Smith worked out for the 49ers.

Smith is going to keep getting looks because the former No. 2 overall pick looks good getting off the bus. His play, however, has gotten him cut by three teams in the last year.

Free agent OT Jason Smith left his visit with the Titans without a contact.

Smith was released on Saturday after he failed to win a swing-tackle job with the Jets. He was never considered likely to sign. The No. 2 pick of the 2009 draft, Smith will look to continue his career on the fifth-year veteran minimum.

Free agent OT Jason Smith visited the Titans.

Smith is notable because he was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2009 draft. He's on the street because he's been dumped by the Rams, Saints and Jets in the last year. The Titans were likely just updating their emergency list.

Jets released OT Jason Smith.

Signed just nine days ago, Smith was aiming for a reprise of his 2012 swing-tackle duties, but predictably couldn't hack it. The No. 2 pick of the 2009 draft will enter the season with just six starts since 2010. He's near the end.

Jets signed OT Jason Smith, formerly of the Saints.

Smith was cut by the Saints on Wednesday, and it's surprising how quickly the colossal bust has found work. Smith spent the 2012 season with the Jets, and performed decently as the team's swing tackle. He'll fill that role again, but Gang Green will be in serious trouble if Smith has to start games.

The New York Post is "hearing" the Jets could bring back free agent OT Jason Smith.

Smith was cut by the Saints on Wednesday. He signed with New Orleans after being released by the Jets earlier in the offseason. The Saints tried Smith at left tackle, but he's a slow-footed, turnstile right tackle-only lineman. He'd compete for the swing tackle role again with Gang Green.

Saints released LT Jason Smith.

The Saints brought in Smith to push Charles Brown for the starting job on Drew Brees' blindside. It never happened. Third-round rookie Terron Armstead will serve as Brown's backup, as Smith heads back to the street. The No. 2 overall pick of the Rams in the 2009 draft has now been cut by two teams in the last six months. Smith is one of the biggest busts in the history of the league.
Wed, Aug 21, 2013 12:34:00 PM

The New Orleans Times-Picayune has observed OT Jason Smith as a player "who's not hot" early on in training camp.

Not a surprise. Smith, a colossal draft bust, has been getting beat around the edge by pedestrian undrafted rookies and street free-agent pickups often in practice. Billed as a "sleeper" for the starting left tackle job as Drew Brees' blindside protector, Smith "hasn't been threatening" Charles Brown for the gig. Rookie Terron Armstead is also likely ahead of Smith on the depth chart.
Mon, Jul 29, 2013 06:22:00 PM

The New Orleans Times-Picayune considers Jason Smith a "sleeper" for the Saints' left tackle job.

We'll call him a deep sleeper. A deep, deep, deep one. Smith is "competing" with Charles Brown and third-rounder Terron Armstead, but is a distant third. Smith did get some first-team reps in OTAs, but he isn't even a lock for a roster spot. The Saints will be in trouble if they need Smith to start games this season.
Tue, Jun 18, 2013 07:24:00 PM

Saints signed OT Jason Smith, formerly of the Jets, to a one-year contract.

Smith, 27 later this month, was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2009 draft by the Rams, but he proved to be a complete bust. Concussions forced him to miss 19 games in three years with St. Louis, and he was traded to the Jets for Wayne Hunter last summer. Smith appeared in all 16 games with New York in 2012 as an extra tackle. He'll compete for a roster spot in training camp.

Jets released OT Jason Smith.

The second overall pick in 2009 by St. Louis, Smith is one of the biggest busts in modern draft history. It's not surprising that the Jets are cutting ties with Smith because he was owed a $12 million roster bonus, and all of that comes off New York's cap. Operating as a special teams blocker and tight end in jumbo packages last season, Smith played under 300 offensive snaps.
Tue, Feb 19, 2013 01:31:00 PM

Jets acquired RT Jason Smith from the Rams in exchange for RT Wayne Hunter.

From one turnstile to another. Like Hunter, Smith had been benched in St. Louis, and was on the roster bubble. The No. 2 pick of the 2009 draft will push undrafted free agent Austin Howard in New York, and likely become a part of the starting lineup at some point early in the year. Plagued by concussions, Smith appeared in only 29 games in three years for the Rams, and was a revolving door when he was in the lineup. He's not a major upgrade for the Jets' embattled offense. Hunter will back-up Barry Richardson in St. Louis.
Mon, Aug 27, 2012 08:08:00 PM

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch believes Rams RT Jason Smith is on the roster bubble.

The No. 2 pick of the 2009 draft hoped to solidify his roster spot by taking a massive pay-cut in April, but he's been running behind Barry Richardson most of the preseason. Even if it's with the reserves, Smith desperately needs a solid showing in Saturday's regular season dress rehearsal against the Cowboys.
Sat, Aug 25, 2012 12:53:00 PM

Rams RT Jason Smith is losing some first-team reps to Barry Richardson.

Even though Smith is a former No. 2 overall pick and Richardson is a 2008 sixth-rounder, coach Jeff Fisher has opened up the job to competition. Smith certainly has more potential, but both are major liabilities pass protection right now. It's an area of concern for the Rams.
