The New Orleans Saints took a step to fill their void at left tackle on Thursday, signing free agent Jason Smith to a one-year contract.

Smith, an All-American at Baylor, was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2009 draft by the St. Louis Rams. He started 26 games in three years in St. Louis, but never developed into the standout the Rams envisioned and was traded to the New York Jets prior to last season.

The 26-year-old Smith (6-foot-5, 308 pounds) is expected to compete at left tackle with holdover Charles Brown, a part-time starter the last two seasons. Two-time Pro Bowler Jermon Bushrod -- the Saints' starting left tackle the last four years -- signed a five-year deal with Chicago in March.
