One of the surprise free-agent moves came when the Bills inked former Jet Brad Smith to a four-year deal worth $15 million. The Bills aren't in need of returners — they have C.J. Spiller, Leodis McKelvin and Roscoe Parrish. While the receiving corps could have used another veteran, Smith hasn't been much of a threat as a receiver. Head coach Chan Gailey has something else in mind, though. "I see him being used in a similar role as I used Kordell (Stewart)," he told the media. Gailey spent four seasons in Pittsburgh with Stewart, one of the best running quarterbacks of all time. Smith excelled as a "Wildcat" quarterback, rushing for 299 yards last season. Gailey is clearly trying to open up the offense a bit, as the Bills don't generally make luxury signings like this one. We hear another spot where Smith could improve the Bills is as a gunner, an area that needs improvement. Smith led the Jets with 12 special-teams tackles in 2010.
