    True Smith is a bust considering he was chosen 2nd overall... but still it would be an amazing trade. You get real depth at that spot for the price of.... wayne hunter? I would be kinda shocked if this deal actually goes through.

    Would be a great pickup but what is the money due? #2 overall that will be a huge chunk of change and trading Hunter doesn't free up space.

    Currently, Smith is the starting right tackle for the Rams. Though drafted as a left tackle he has been beaten out by 2010 Rams rookie Rodger Saffold.[13] As a rookie, in 2009, Smith played mostly right tackle, although he played some left tackle—the position for which he was drafted. In his rookie season Smith suffered a serious concussion November 22, 2009. "My situation was real serious," Smith related and it caused him to miss the remainder of his rookie season

    Thx, so the Jets are taking on a $6.6 million contract in exchange for Hunter's $2.5 million? That is big money for a RT..Am I wrong here?

    Edit after Dirtstar's post..

    $4 million this year with voidable contract in 2013 isn't a bad trade off but the Jets are not going to pay his $11 million roster bonus in 2013..

    Can someone confirm this. Cimini's twitter doesn't show this.

    Hell freaking no. Schotty is trying to bamboozle us. They both suck but Smith's contract is worse.

    They reworked his deal.

    This dude Smith is as bad as Hunter . Atleast Hunter was undrafted,but this Joker has all the potential in the world but can't perform. What does this sound like to anyone.

    From all accounts, Smith is a mauler as a run blocker, and struggles at Pass Pro. I'm not sure if this is to compete with Howard, Slauson or to improve our jumbo set, while upgrading the OL depth. I think the jumbo package/depth is probably most likely. I'm all for this move.

    yes, it does: https://twitter.com/RichCimini


    and now, a bunch of others are confirming:

    Can confirm Rams and Jets close to swap of Hunter for Smith. Rams new regime sees Smith as a rote, limited player as wrote a few weeks back

    I've been told that the Wayne Hunter trade to the Rams is "possible" at this point. Don't know much more yet. #nyj

    Jets are on the verge of acquiring OT Jason Smith from St. Louis via trade.

    I was just told that the Wayne Hunter deal to the Rams for RT Jason Smith "is going to happen" now.

    So it will cost us an extra 1.6 mil, then we rework his contract next year, or cut him as the case may be. That's like signing Smith for a one year 1.6mil contract considering we already wasted the 2.4 on a useless player. I like it. Sorry St Louis.

    i mean, really.
    it's pretty ridiculous thinking about it. Who in the their right mind would trade for him after all the recent PUBLIC comments about how horrible he is?

    Lets really hope not.

    Smith is really really really awful.

    Trade is a wash in my book, at least Smith has/had potential.

    Marginal upgrade. I still think Austin Howard starts. They did Hunter a favor by getting him out of town when the media/fans view him as a pariah.
