Former Ravens RB Musa Smith joins the Jets.
To further add depth to their running back corps, the Jets signed five year veteran Musa Smith, formerly of the Baltimore Ravens. Jets Insider.com reported last week that Smith could be signed after he was spotted at the Jets complex during team OTA's.
Smith (6-0, 232, Georgia/Elliottsburg, PA) played in 49 games over five years with the Ravens, rushing for 496 yards and four touchdowns on 132 carries while catching 27 passes for 363 yards. He’s also returned six kicks for a 22.2 average. He set career highs in 2007 with 264 yards rushing (75 carries, two touchdowns) and 192 yards receiving on 27 receptions. He was a third round pick for the Ravens (77th overall) in the 2003 NFL Draft.
Contract details were not available but it's believed that Smith signed a one year deal.
