PLAYERS: Hayden Smith
TEAMS: New York Jets
Hayden Smith's first post signing interview Here is an interview from Hayden Smith, the Australian Rugby player who recently signed with the New York Jets to play tight-end. The interview is conducted by Sarries TV, the professional rugby team that Hayden was playing on until he recently signed his three year contract with the Jets. As you can see below, Hayden Smith appears to be a well spoken guy, with some serious determination and an excellent head on his shoulders. Jets fans are already hoping for Smith to become the next Rob Gronkowski, but I think we should ditch the comparisons and just root Hayden on to become a regular contributor to the Jets. It’s obviously going to take some time, growing pains and a ton of hard work, but if anyone can make the switch from college basketball, to rugby, to professional football, it looks like Hayden Smith has an excellent chance. So without further introduction, here is the newest New York Jet, Hayden Smith, speaking to Sarries TV after signing with Gang Green.
