When he was the quarterback for the Missouri football team, there is no doubt he was the most valuable player. Now that he’s a kick returner in the NFL, Brad Smith is still making a major impact. The USA Today went so far as to say Smith is the MVP for the New York Jets this season:
Smith’s 28.6-yard kickoff return average paced the league among players with at least 25 returns. He scored on runbacks vs. the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers, keying both New York victories. He also completed two passes while running the Jets’ version of the Wildcat. And he was third on the team with 299 rushing yards, caught four passes for 44 yards and contributed 14 special-teams tackles.
