The Bills agreed to a deal with former Jets WR-RS Brad Smith to a four-year deal on Thursday, his agency Priority Sports announced.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal is worth $15 million.
Smith had just four catches in 16 games last season, but rushed for 299 yards, mainly as the team's 'Wildcat' quarterback. He also averaged 28.6 yards on kickoffs and took two kickoffs back for touchdowns.
The way we see it
It's no surprise that Smith is leaving New York, but the Bills were an unlikely destination. We had heard the Bills would possibly be in the market for another receiver, and Smith has skills in the "Wildcat" to allow Chan Gailey to throw more wrinkles into his offense.
With solid returners in C.J. Spiller and Roscoe Parrish, it will be interesting to see if Smith gets involved in the return game.
