Jets GM Mike Maccagnan announced Saturday that WR Devin Smith tore his ACL during OTAs and will be out for the 2017 season.
According to Maccagnan, Smith suffered the injury the day before OTAs and it happens to be to the same knee he previously injured. Smith has already undergone surgery and will likely be placed on season-ending injured reserve.
Smith, 25, is a former second-round pick of the Jets back in 2015. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $5.872 million rookie contract that includes $3.667 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $615,000 and $705,000 over the final two years of the agreement.
In 2016, Smith was limited to appearing in just four games and caught one pass for 20 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
