#Cowboys have signed LB Jaylon Smith; Team plans on keeping him on the roster

Notre Dame linebacker Jaylon Smith purchased loss of value insurance that would pay him 5 million dollars if he slipped in the draft.

Cowboys have signed rookie Jaylon Smith and plan on keeping him on the roster

The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms with second-round LB Jaylon Smith, according to Todd Archer of ESPN. The Cowboys drafted Smith knowing he suffered a knee injury that could set him back the entire year.  The Cowboys still felt comfortable enough to draft him in the early second round. The Cowboys are not planning on putting Smith on the injured reserve either.

When Jerry Jones spoke on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas,  Jones said the club will not put second-round pick Jaylon Smith on injured reserve when the season starts, despite a serious knee injury.

“We’ll take a chance he’ll be back for the playoffs,” Jones said of the linebacker.

Smith was asked following the pick whether he had a chance of playing in 2016.

“Absolutely,” he said. “Never doubt God.”
