The Cowboys are taking a shot on a failed second-rounder for the Jets in WR Devin Smith, signing him to a futures contract on Friday.
Smith was drated 37th overall by Gang Green back in 2015 after having a superb collegiate career at Ohio State. However, the injury bug wasn't too friendly to the now 26-year-old.
During his rookie season, Smith tore his ACL in Week 14 against the Titans, ending his year with only 115 yards and one touchdown. In 2016, Smith didn't see much playing time, playing in only four games after starting the year on the PUP list.
Hoping to take a big leap and prove his draft worth in his third year, Smith's offseason training went awry when he re-tore his ACL. After learning of the news and weighing their options, the Jets waived/injured Smith and he hasn't seen the gridiron since.
Now, he has an opportunity to make the Cowboys 53-man roster if he has a good training camp. All eyes will be on him to see if he still has the skills necessary to play in the league.
