Brad Smith speaks Dan Leberfeld

Jets wide receiver/kick returner/option quarterback Brad Smith is a free agent.
The Jets tendered him at the second round level, so he’s likely staying put.
Kris Dyer of Metro New York caught up with Smith early this week.
“I’m a Jet,” Smith told Metro. “I love playing for the Jets. I really couldn’t imagine not playing for the Jets. It’s important for me to have a larger role. We’ll see how it plays out, but I believe I’ve shown that I can play wide receiver. … You try to take advantage of every single opportunity you get, but you also want to have that role defined for you as well, and I want that bigger role in the offense. I love the Jets, but more than that I love my teammates and I love the fans here. I’d like to stay here if they can make the best offer for me.”
