Brad Smith WR PHI 23 Days
Eagles will sign 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.

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 this summer. Buffalo drafted Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin in the second and third rounds, respectively. The Bills also added top UDFA Da'Rick Rogers to the mix with 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 candidates for release.

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.
