12:37 PM ET 04.12 | One of the larger busts of what has become a bust-filled 2009 NFL draft is getting another shot as the New Orleans Saints announced on Thursday that they had agreed to terms on a one-year contract with free agent offensive tackle Jason Smith. The Saints lost left tackle Jermon Bushrod to free agency as the two-time Pro Bowler signed a five-year, $35.965 million contract with the Chicago Bears. The Saints have invested big money on their guards ??? starters Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs will earn $12.7 million in cash this season ??? which hasn't left much financial resources for the tackle position.
