NFL: How New York Jet's TE Hayden Smith Could Change Football

The New York Jets made a surprise signing this offseason, inking Australian rugby player Hayden Smith to a three-year deal.

Smith has no football experience and has been playing rugby in England for a few seasons, and he also represented the USA in the World Cup of Rugby in 2011.
