The New Orleans Saints added some veteran competition at tackle as former No. 2 overall pick tackle Jason Smith agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Saints on Thursday. Smith spent last season with the Jets and New York released him in mid-February. The 6-foot-5, 308-pound tackle should compete with Charles Brown for the starting left tackle spot. But dubbing Smith as the starter would be completely premature. Smith, 26, was the second overall selection in the 2009 draft by St. Louis. He didn't exactly pan out for the Rams and is known for being a bust more than anything else in the NFL. St. Louis cut ties with Smith after only three seasons by trading him to New York in late August before the 2012 season.
