Jets add Speedy Receiver Vyncint Smith From Texans Practice Squad

Looking to add a bit of depth to their wide receiver room, the Jets have poached speedy receiver Vyncint Smith from the Houston Texans to place him on their 53-man roster.

The inexperienced 6′ 3” Smith has reportedly blazed 40 times in the 4.3’s but was viewed as a long-term project having come out of little known Limestone College in South Carolina.

In 7 career contests (1 start), Smith has 5 receptions for 91 yards, to include a 35-yard touchdown catch for his only score as a pro.

Smith will look to get some reps on the outside where the Jets are lacking with Quincy Enunwa out for the season and Demaryius Thomas nursing a balky hamstring.

To make room for Smith, the Jets parted ways with backup quarterback David Fales.
