  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Signs new contract

    Smith signed a one-year contract with the Jets on Monday, Howard Balzer of SI.com reports.

    Smith appeared in 12 games for the Jets last season, recording eight catches on 17 targets for 113 yards. It was a step backwards statistically from 2020 for the third-year pro, but he did see an increased role on special teams as a gunner on kickoffs and punts.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Mostly special-teams role in 2021

    Smith caught eight of 17 targets for 113 yards in 2021.

    Smith appeared in 12 games with the Jets and featured regularly on special teams but rarely saw the field on offense. He'll be an exclusive-rights free agent this offseason, which means the Jets have the option to bring Smith back at the league minimum salary, and New York may opt to do so based on Smith's special-teams contributions as the gunner on kickoffs and punts.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: One catch in Week 17 loss

    Smith caught one of four targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 28-24 loss to Tampa Bay.

    Smith tied a season high with four targets but didn't make much of his opportunities. He could see an increased role once again in Week 18 against the Bills given the Jets' dearth of healthy pass-catchers, but Smith's unlikely to make a significant impact on the stat sheet.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Targeted once in return

    Smith (undisclosed) didn't catch his only target in Sunday's 26-21 win over Jacksonville.

    Smith returned from the reserve/COVID-19 list following a two-week absence, but he remains an afterthought in the low-octane Jets passing attack. While he's a valuable contributor on special teams, Smith rarely sees the field on offense.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Returns to active roster

    Smith (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.

    Smith has been in the health and safety protocols the past two weeks but has now been reinstated to the active roster. The 24-year-old has seen most of his action on special teams this season and should return to that role now that he's healthy.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Lands on reserve/COVID-19 list

    Smith was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    It's unclear whether Smith tested positive or was a close contact, but the overwhelming likelihood is that he will now be out Sunday against the Saints. His likely absence will leave the Jets very thin at wide receiver, as they are already without Corey Davis (groin), and Elijah Moore (quadriceps) is questionable after having failed to practice all week.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Best game of season Thursday

    Smith caught three of four targets for 40 yards in Thursday's 45-30 loss to the Colts.

    Smith caught multiple passes in a game for the first time since Week 8 of last season. His uptick in production can likely be attributed to third-string quarterback Josh Johnson being pressed into duty after Mike White injured his forearm in the first quarter. Johnson's reps in practice have come predominantly with receivers buried deep down the depth chart, so he and Smith have been able to build a rapport.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: One catch in Week 8

    Smith caught his lone target for 10 yards and rushed once for minus-1 yard in Sunday's 34-31 win over the Bengals.

    Smith was a healthy scratch in Week 7 but returned to the game-day roster with Corey Davis (hip) unavailable. When he plays, Smith's role is limited primarily to special teams.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Inactive Sunday

    Smith will be a healthy scratch for the Jets on Sunday against the Patriots.

    Smith missed Weeks 4 and 5 with a concussion, then returned to practice Oct. 20 after the Jets' bye week. Despite being cleared to play, the Jets will look elsewhere for offense against New England. Although active Weeks 1 through 3, Smith logged limited snaps to the tune of four targets, two receptions and 48 yards. Smith will hope to crack the game-day roster Week 8 against the Bengals.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Back from concussion

    Smith (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

    Smith has been in concussion protocol since Week 4, missing two games a result. However, he apparently made enough progress in his recovery during the team's bye week to clear the NFL's five-step concussion protocol. In three appearances on the season, Smith has recorded two receptions for 48 yards.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Ruled out against Falcons

    Smith (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Falcons, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Smith will miss his second consecutive game due to a concussion, which he originally suffered in a car accident on the way to the Jets' practice facility. Prior to the injury, Smith had recorded two receptions on four targets for 48 yards across three contests.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Remains in concussion protocol

    Coach Robert Saleh said Wednesday that Smith remains in the concussion protocol, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    Smith was held out of the Jets' Week 4 win over the Titans due to a concussion, and his status is still in question ahead of Sunday's matchup against Atlanta. Even if the 24-year-old is cleared to return in Week 5, he's unlikely to play a significant role.
