Two USC football stars are together on Jets’ offensive line: Tyron Smith and Alijah Vera-Tucker

The New York Jets’ acquisition of Tyron Smith unites the future Pro Football Hall of Famer with another USC Trojan in the Big Apple. Alijah Vera-Tucker and Smith will now be teammates and fellow offensive linemen, tasked with protecting Aaron Rodgers in New York.

Jets Wire wrote about this:

“Smith played 847 snaps in 2023, or 72 percent of the Cowboys’ total snaps on offense, but played only 271 snaps in 2022 and only 60 percent of snaps in 2021. Since 2015, Smith has missed 49 games.

“The addition of Smith now solidifies the Jets’ starting offensive line. With Smith at left tackle, he will have recently signed John Simpson at left guard. Joe Tippmann will be the center, with Alijah Vera-Tucker at right guard and Morgan Moses at right tackle.”

It will be exciting to see two Trojans together on one of the most interesting teams in the NFL this coming season. If Aaron Rodgers can stay healthy, the Jets might have a chance to do something significant in 2024. We will all be watching this team and its USC linemen.
