Eagles to sign multi-dimensional WR Brad Smith, pending physical
Former Jets receiver Brad Smith will sign with the Eagles after a short stint with the Bills. His skill set fits Chip Kelly's spread formations in Philly.
The Philadelphia Eagles plan to sign wide receiver Brad Smith on Tuesday, pending a physical, according to a team source.
Smith, who was an impact player in certain situations for the Jets, became a free-agent a few days ago following a short stint with the Bills. Buffalo signed him as a free agent under a former coaching regime, and injuries derailed him this season.
Smith, however, got healthy enough to pass a physical last week and was released from IR by Buffalo. The Eagles, who run a lot of spread formation stuff under Chip Kelly, have suffered through several injuries to receivers and Smith's Wildcat skill set fits their offense well.
The Eagles have climbed back to .500 behind quarterback Nick Foles -- with 10 touchdowns and no interceptions in two games back from a concussion -- and face Washington in a key NFC East contest this Sunday.
