Bills' Andre Smith: Staying in Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith signed a two-year contract worth up to $3 million Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Smith was set to be a restricted free agent, but the two sides have agreed to a deal. The 23-year-old linebacker played just 47 defensive snaps over 12 games in 2020, so most of his value comes on special teams. The Bills may have to let Matt Milano go, and Smith could contribute more defensively if that's the case, at least in the short term.

Bills' Andre Smith: Larger role awaits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith's teammate Matt Milano (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Smith seems like the most likely substitute starter at weak-side linebacker while the Bills await Milano's return, which will have to be at least two more games. Smith has only played 16 defensive snaps all season, so we fully expect the Bills to use a few different players depending on the package, plus the team has a few defensive backs that can handle linebacker-type duties. In other words, while Smith now has a big opportunity in front of him, he's probably still a ways from IDP value.

Bills' Andre Smith: Joins Buffalo's active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was promoted to the Bills' active roster from the practice squad Tuesday, Maddy Glab of the team's official site reports.

The 23-year-old has been on Buffalo's practice squad all season, and he exclusively played special teams in the two games he was elevated to the active roster as an extra player. Smith figures to have a similar role now that he potentially has a longer-term place on the team.

Andre Smith: Heading back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was moved back to Buffalo's practice squad after suiting up during Sunday's 18-10 win against the Jets, per the NFL's official transaction log.

The 23-year-old linebacker garnered 13 special-teams snaps against New York, but he still has not been utilized on defense in any of his three appearances this season. Smith heads back to the practice squad for now, but he's been summoned to the active roster two times over Buffalo's past three games.

Bills' Andre Smith: Weekend promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was elevated from the practice squad Saturday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

Smith has bumped around the Bills' roster since being acquired in a cheap late-August trade with the Panthers, and he'll be needed for depth and special teams work this week with three linebackers having been ruled out for Buffalo's game against Miami.

Andre Smith: Quick stop in Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills are expected to cut Smith on Saturday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network per a source.

The Bills just traded for Smith on Monday with Carolina. While it seems like that was a foolish move given Saturday's cut, the word is the pick was conditional and in the end Buffalo got what amounts to a free look at Smith. Perhaps the Bills will try to move him to the practice squad if he clears waivers.

Bills' Andre Smith: Acquired by Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was traded to Buffalo from Carolina on Monday in exchange for a conditional pick in 2023, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The cost isn't very steep for the Bills, who continue to build depth and try to improve their special teams. Smith still probably has some work to do to have something more than a short-term role with his new squad.

Panthers' Andre Smith: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, David Newton of reports.

Smith sat out three consecutive regular season matches due to a lingering hamstring injury, but finally appears to be nearing a return to the field. The rookie seventh-round pick should see work on special teams during Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Panthers' Andre Smith: Won't play Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Smith will miss his third straight game due to a lingering hamstring injury. The rookie is expected to take most of his snaps on special teams when healthy, so his absence is unlikely to have a large impact on Sunday's game against Baltimore.

Panthers' Andre Smith: Ruled out Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Smith will miss his second consecutive game with the hamstring issue sustained in his season debut against the Giants in Week 5. The 21-year-old was a non-participant at practice this week.

Panthers' Andre Smith: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was ruled out for Sunday's game against Washington due to a hamstring injury, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Smith was unable to practice this week after seeing his first game action of the season in Sunday's win over the Giants. The rookie seventh-round pick's absence shouldn't notably affect the Panthers' starting defense, but he may require some shifts on special teams.

Panthers' Andre Smith: Tweaks hamstring in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith tweaked his hamstring during Thursday's preseason opener against the Bills, David Newton of ESPN reports.

The severity of Smith's injury isn't clear. The seventh-round rookie can't afford to miss much time if he wants to make the final roster in Chicago.
