Jets spokesman on bizarre suspension of Smith

Like many people, the Jets themselves are shocked at the $50,000 fine and one game suspension of safety Eric Smith for his hit on Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin.

"We respect and support the League's emphasis on player safety," said Jets spokesman Bruce Speight. "Knowing Eric, we are confident that he did not intend to injure Anquan Boldin. Anquan was hit from behind by another player that accelerated the collision with Eric. Our thoughts are with Anquan and we hope that he has a healthy recovery."
