Philadelphia Eagles sign KR/WR Brad Smith

Just four days after he was released by the Buffalo Bills, kick return specialist Brad Smith, has already found a new team to sign with.

The Philadelphia Eagles announced that they signed Smith to a deal on Tuesday, however the details to the contract have not yet been released.


Smith, who wore No. 16 at practice Tuesday afternoon, has also played quarterback and wide receiver in the NFL. He had played for the Bills since 2011 but suffered a rib injury in the preseason and was recently released.

The 29-year-old Smith caught 14 passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns last season with the Bills. He also ran 14 times for 116 yards and a touchdown. On special teams, he averaged 27.6 yards per kickoff return. From 2009-12, Smith had four touchdown returns.

It will be interesting to see if Smith’s signing pays off or the Eagles, because at this point, the NFC East division title is still up for grabs, despite the regular beginning its home stretch.

CBS Sports first reported the signing.
