It was a parting of ways that likely unforeseen when he was signed as a free agent prior to the 2011 season. On Friday the Bills released WR/KR Brad Smith from injured reserve in an injury settlement making him a free agent. The 29-year old multi-faceted player is now free to sign with any other NFL club and play this season. The only team by rule that he cannot play for is Buffalo.
When the Bills signed Smith as a free agent a few years ago, they were hoping he would be as dynamic for them as he was for the Jets, but things never worked out that way.
