Saints re-signed TE Alex Smith.

Smith was released earlier this week, but is needed again now that Kevin Brock is on I.R. With Orson Charles suspended for Week 1, 33-year-old Smith and Michael Egnew are competing for No. 3 tight end duties.
Aug 19 - 5:19 PM

Saints released TE Alex Smith.

The 33-year-old journeyman lasted just over a week in Saints camp.
Aug 16 - 9:27 PM

Saints signed TE Alex Smith, formerly of the Bengals.

Smith missed all but two games last year on injured reserve. A veteran blocker, Smith will try to push Orson Charles for a reserve inline/H-back role.
Aug 7 - 5:02 PM

Bengals placed TE Alex Smith on injured reserve with a biceps injury, ending his season.

A veteran blocker, Smith sustained the injury in Sunday's win. Now 32, Smith won't be guaranteed to find work in 2015.

Bengals re-signed TE Alex Smith.

The Bengals actually left Smith's locker open, but they were waiting for him to recover from offseason wrist surgery. He'll chip in as an inline blocker and even line up as a fullback at times. Smith should be ready for camp.
Tue, Jun 10, 2014 12:54:00 PM

Free agent TE Alex Smith has had conversations about re-signing with the Bengals.

Smith dislocated his wrist in the season finale and is still rehabbing. Smith is merely a blocker at this stage of his career. He can also play some fullback.
Thu, May 29, 2014 12:04:00 PM

Bengals signed TE Alex Smith.

Smith had an impact as a pass-catcher early on his career, hauling in 108 receptions over his first three NFL seasons. But over the last five years, he's turned into a blocking specialist and has caught a total of 52 passes. Smith is capable of chipping in at fullback and setting the edge in the run game.

The Bengals are "getting close" to signing free agent TE Alex Smith.

Smith would be brought in to block on the line of scrimmage, perhaps allowing Jermaine Gresham to flex out more. Smith turns 31 years old next month.
Fri, Apr 12, 2013 10:10:00 PM

The Bengals will host TE Alex Smith for a free-agent visit on Wednesday.

Smith is a blocking specialist in the old Reggie Kelly mold. The Bengals have used a sixth offensive lineman in that role over the past few seasons.

ESPN Cleveland expects the Browns to allow free agent TEs Alex Smith and Ben Watson to walk.

As does the Cleveland Plain Dealer. New coach Rob Chudzinski makes heavy use of tight ends, but the Browns need to get younger and more explosive at the position. A blocking specialist, Smith has just 160 catches in eight seasons.
Fri, Mar 1, 2013 08:47:00 AM

Alex Smith is now listed as the Browns' starting fullback on their official depth chart.

Smith goes from 6'4/258 tight end to Trent Richardson's oversized lead blocker. He showed well in the role last week when Owen Marecic was a healthy scratch.
Wed, Oct 31, 2012 10:55:00 AM

Browns TE Alex Smith (concussion) has resumed practicing.

Smith missed three games. The Browns use Smith as a utility tight end, playing him at the line of scrimmage as well as the backfield. His return could cut into Jordan Cameron's playing time.
Wed, Oct 10, 2012 01:39:00 PM

Browns TE Alex Smith (concussion) is sitting out practice again this week.

Smith has yet to practice since sustaining a concussion in Week 2. Second tight end Jordan Cameron should see increased snaps again versus the Giants.
Thu, Oct 4, 2012 01:28:00 PM

Alex Smith (concussion) and Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring) were held out of Browns practice on Tuesday.

It's not a good sign that Smith wasn't ready to go after sitting out last week. Jordan Cameron will likely see increased snaps versus the Ravens, though he's only an option in deep leagues. Massaquoi is expected to miss this week's game.
