NEW YORK -- A person familiar with the deal said Saturday the Jets have re-signed safety Eric Smith to a three-year contract, keeping the key backup in New York.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team hadn't announced the move.
Smith, 28, has 201 career tackles, along with four interceptions, 17 passes defensed and a sack.
The signing was first reported by The Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J.
