  • Jaylon Smith: Joins Pittsburgh's practice squad

    The Steelers signed Smith to their practice squad Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the the team's official site reports.

    An agreement between Pittsburgh and Smith was reported to be in the works Tuesday, and it's now become clear that it's a practice-squad deal. While Smith has played in just one game this season (in Week 9 with the Raiders), he has ample NFL experience, participating in 88 regular-season contests -- including 69 as a starter -- over seven campaigns and making one Pro Bowl appearance. Pittsburgh has already ruled out starting linebacker Elandon Roberts for Sunday's contest against Seattle, so it's feasible that Smith could be elevated to provide depth in that matchup.

  • Jaylon Smith: Kicked to curb

    Smith was released by the Saints on Tuesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    In a very surprising move, Smith has been released after signing with New Orleans on Aug. 10. The veteran linebacker has had stints with Dallas, Green Bay and New York since being picked in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He's appeared in 87 games throughout his eight-year NFL career and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2018. Smith will look for a new home ahead of the coming season.

  • Saints' Jaylon Smith: May have secured roster spot

    Smith is trending toward making New Orleans' final 53-man roster following Sunday's 17-13 preseason loss to the Texans, according to Luke Johnson of

    Smith tied with rookie linebacker Nephi Sewell for a team-high five tackles Sunday, including a team-high two tackles for loss. The veteran has spent time practicing at all three off-ball linebacker spots since signing with the Saints on Aug. 10, per Johnson, potentially making a valuable backup option behind starters Demario Davis and Pete Werner. Smith's versatility and ability as a playmaker against the run could make him an intriguing fit in New Orleans' linebacker corps this coming season.

  • Saints' Jaylon Smith: Finds new home

    Smith signed with the Saints on Thursday, NFL insider Jordan Schultz reports.

    Smith had a solid showing with the Giants last season, appearing in 13 games and making 88 tackles (44 solo). However, he remained a free agent as teams began training camp. After a workout with New Orleans on Thursday, the 28-year-old inked a deal with the team. He'll now work to get acclimated with his new squad and earn a role in the Saints' linebacker corps.

  • Giants' Jaylon Smith: Works up to prominent role

    Smith played in 13 games this season, racking up 88 tackles (46 solo), one sack and a recovered fumble.

    After splitting time between three clubs last year and logging just 38 tackles across 10 games, Smith began the 2022 campaign without a team. He eventually joined New York's practice squad before getting a deal to join the active roster, and he played in each of the Giants' contests from Week 4 to Week 17 before resting for the regular-season finale. The veteran linebacker picked up the pace as the campaign moved on, notching at least nine tackles in five of his final six appearances. Smith will become a free agent after this season, but he's been a good fit with New York, so the team could look to bring him back given his (and the team's) success this year.
