Free agent WR/KR Brad Smith is visiting the Bills Tuesday.

There are a lot of ties here as Smith played for the Bills from 2011-13 and also played for Rex Ryan in New York from 2009-10. The visit should put incumbent special teamers/wideouts Marcus Easley and Marcus Thigpen on notice.

Eagles WR/KR Brad Smith (sports hernia) will be out a couple weeks.

Smith needed minor surgery on a core muscle. It's a blow to a special teams unit that is a big reason the Eagles are 4-1. Josh Huff will have to step in as the primary kick returner.

Eagles WR/KR Brad Smith has agreed to a restructured contract.

Smith was owed $1.3 million this season, but the new deal lowers his base salary by $395,000. He's now due just $450,000 in guaranteed money. Smith, 30, will compete for a role on special teams and as a reserve wideout.

Eagles signed WR/KR Brad Smith.

The Bills waived Smith off injured reserve Friday. He'll step into Chip Kelly's scheme as depth at wideout and a potential Wildcat quarterback. Smith, 30, could also very well take Damaris Johnson's job on both punt and kickoff returns.

Bills waived WR Brad Smith with an injury settlement.

Smith injured his ribs during the preseason and was placed on injured reserve at final cuts. He's 100 percent healthy. Smith turns 30 years old next month. He can play receiver, run the wildcat, and contribute on special teams.

Bills placed WR Brad Smith (ribs) and FB Drew Smith (undisclosed) on injured reserve, ending their seasons.

It's actually a nice outcome for B. Smith, who was in danger of losing his roster spot. He'll get his full $1.5 million salary spending the year on I.R.

Bills WR Brad Smith has agreed to a restructured contract.

Smith likely took a pay cut off the $2.75 million he was scheduled to earn in 2013. While the renegotiated deal should increase Smith's roster chances, he's still squarely on the bubble.

BuffaloBills.com left Brad Smith off its list of receivers with "relatively secure futures in Buffalo."

Back to being a full-time wideout, Smith wasn't lumped in with Stevie Johnson, T.J. Graham, Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin. Reporter Chris Brown does call Smith a "dependable veteran" who "made his share of plays in the spring." Ultimately, it's hard to see Smith surviving his $2.75 million salary and keeping his roster spot.

ESPN AFC East blogger James Walker gives Brad Smith just a 40 percent chance of keeping his roster spot.

Even that might be optimistic after the Bills added Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin and Da'Rick Rogers. Smith's $2.75 million salary makes him a prime candidate for release. Smith has been lining up exclusively at receiver this offseason after combining for just 37 catches the past two seasons.

Bills WR/QB/KR Brad Smith lined up exclusively at receiver in spring practices.

It would actually be better news for Smith if the new regime viewed him as a wildcat quarterback, as he's due an untenable $2.75 million. That, coupled with the Bills' talent infusion at receiver makes Smith highly unlikely to survive cuts. Going on 30, Smith has caught just 37 passes in two seasons in Buffalo.

WGR 550 reports WR/KR/QB Brad Smith is "firmly atop" the list of potential cap casualties for the Bills.

Smith, 29, has two years left on a four-year, $15 million contract, and the Bills can save $2.75 million against the cap by releasing him. Buffalo used day-two picks on Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin, and signed top UDFA Da'Rick Rogers behind Stevie Johnson and T.J. Graham. Smith doesn't have much of a role anymore. Beat writer Joe Buscaglia also names RT Erik Pears, K Rian Lindell, QB Tarvaris Jackson, and DE Mark Anderson as release candidates.

Bills WR/QB Brad Smith caught two passes for 49 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against the Patriots.

We all know the drill on Smith by now. While he has some talent and can play multiple offensive and special teams roles, he's never a big enough part of Chan Gailey's week-to-week game plan to be given serious fantasy-start consideration. Smith entered Week 4 with five touches for 27 total yards. Leave him on the waiver wire heading to Week 5 against San Francisco.

The Bills are incorporating more passing plays for Brad Smith in their Wildcat package.

We suspect Smith's primary role will be on special teams, but the Bills plan to get him involved in spread/option packages, and at wide receiver. Smith saw 403 offensive snaps last season, drawing 41 targets.
Sat, Jul 14, 2012 06:54:00 PM

Coach Chan Gailey said the Bills have ''expanded their plans'' for Brad Smith in the team's Wildcat package.

Smith has worked almost exclusively at quarterback during OTAs, but Gailey confirmed the Bills will continue to use him at wide receiver and in gadget-type roles. In addition to special teams, Smith projects as the Bills' third quarterback and fifth receiver.
