This past Saturday, the NY Jets released back-up punter Joe Smith, who wears jersey number 4. Brett Favre also signed his papers to be reinstated into the NFL on Tuesday. Could this be an omen for the emergence of Brett Favre to the city of bright lights and big buildings? As if that is not enough fuel to fuel Jets fans fire, the Green Bay packers quickly picked up Joe Smith. Coincidental isn’t it?
You might ask, who is Joe Smith? So I did some research and really couldn’t find much. He played for the CWU Wildcats (Central Washington) in college and signed as a free agent with the Jets last season. In college, he was a two sport athlete, playing football and baseball. He signed with the NY Mets as a pitcher after college in 2007. He did not play a down last season for the JETS, behind punter #7 Ben Graham.
Sorry you had to go Joe, but If Brett is coming to the City, C-ya. I wouldn’t even care if the Jets left Favre in there to punt. Maybe even toss in a little fake every now and then.
