Former No. 2 overall draft pick Jason Smith signed a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints.
Smith played for the New York Jets last season after being dealt for offensive tackle Wayne Hunter.
The Saints add Smith to the mix at offensive tackle, a position in flux following Jermon Bushrod's free agent departure. Bushrod signed a five-year, $35 million contract with the Bears on March 12.
Smith has 26 starts in 45 career games. He was drafted second overall out of Baylor in 2009.
