Hunter will be reunited with his former offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer in St. Louis while Smith gets a fresh start in New York after struggling with the Rams. Smith started 6 games last season at right tackle and restructured the remaining 2 years of his rookie contract to avoid being released.
