Courtney Smith signs with New York Jets

July 26, 2011 · By · Filed Under Football, News 

Multiple places are reporting that the New York Jets has signed former wide receiver Courtney Smith. Details of the contract are not known at this time.

The first reports of Courtney’s signing came on his Facebook page but now multiple websites also report the was signed by the Jets. The website NYJetsDraft.com wrote,

“Smith is a super rangy player with absolutely massive upside at the next level. He has good hands and the athletic ability to stretch the field. Smith is a bit of a project, but he could pay off in a big way down the road.”

Many friends and family have posted congratulations on his Facebook wall throughout the day.

The New York Jets was one game away from the Super Bowl last season, losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers 24-19 in Pittsburgh. Also former University of Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy was drafted by the Jets in the NFL Draft. McElroy worked with Smith at the Senior Bowl and made light that he enjoyed throwing to a big target.

Smith also participated in the University of Alabama Pro Day but only participated in agility drills and none of the receiver drills. However he did have a Pro Day at the University of South Alabama which showcased his receiver skills for pro scouts.

I’m quite sure that there will be several South Alabama fans who will be watching the Jets season closely with an eye on Courtney.
