That's the beauty of Brad Smith.
There is much more beneath the surface of his frame. Pinkel realized that shortly after his visit with Smith and the churchgoers of Mount Calvary. Five years later, so did the Jets.
While the spotlight focuses on Brett Favre 's return to the Meadowlands, Santonio Holmes ' Jets debut and Randy Moss ' second act with the Vikings on Monday night, the easygoing Smith will be returning kickoffs, covering punts and lining up as a wide receiver and possibly a running back and quarterback. Each week, the Jets draw up specific plays to get the ball in his hands.
Last week, a simple run-pass option drawn up for Smith resulted in his first NFL touchdown pass against Buffalo. After he found an open Dustin Keller in the end zone from the 3-yard line to help seal a win, he ran down the field to cover the next kickoff.
His deceptive speed and lower-body strength make Smith, 26, a natural on the field. But he could barely walk as a baby. He was diagnosed with weakened metatarsals that caused his feet to curl, almost into little balls.

When he was between the age of 4 and 6 months, casts were put on his feet to straighten them. Eventually, those gave way to braces, then shoes that looked as if they were on the wrong foot. He'd be able to walk and run someday, doctors told his mother, Sherri Brogdon. But it wouldn't be easy. His recovery was the result of divine intervention, the family believes. From his playing days as a 6-year-old on Mount Calvary's football team, The Sons of Thunder, to his record-breaking collegiate career at Missouri, Smith's priorities have always remained the same: faith, family and then football.
His faith helped him keep his poise when, as a freshman, he supplanted senior Kirk Farmer as the Tigers' starting quarterback and went on to become the first player in NCAA history to pass for 8, yards and rush for 4, in his career. His faith also steeled him for the biggest blow of his life: Wagner's death earlier this year.
Brogdon raised him, his older brother Joshua and their older sister Philecia as a single mother. From Indianapolis , she and the kids moved to Los Angeles before settling in Youngstown. There they found refuge within the walls of Mount Calvary. But the bishop died having never seen Smith play in person. He had open-heart surgery in January and from his hospital bed watched Smith on TV during the Jets' playoff run.
