Buffalo Bills Wide Receiver Brad Smith Will Have to Fight for His Job in 2013
In 2012, Buffalo Bills used Brad Smith as a proverbial Swiss Army Knife between playing quarterback, wide receiver, running back and return specialist. His versatility was an asset due to lack of depth at positions. It was also assumed under former quarterbacks coach David Lee, whom pioneered the wildcat offense for the Miami Dolphins, that we would see a lot of new wrinkles, and it was nothing short of an epic failure for the Bills and their offense. In the end, it cost the jobs of the entire coaching staff.
Smith didn’t have a bad year, he just didn’t have a great year as he had four touchdowns total between two receiving, one rushing and one returning. However, as a quarterback he threw one pass that was extremely off the mark and it resulted in an interception to Patrick Peterson. The turnover nearly cost the game versus the Arizona Cardinals, but with the luck of defensive end Alex Carrington’s big hand, he directed kicker Jay Feeley‘s potentially game winning field goal.
The reason why Smith will have to climb a steep slope and it’ll be a fight to say the least, is that the Bills totally reloaded their offense including taking two wide receivers and a quarterback in the 2013 NFL Draft. They also signed more offensive targets during the undrafted free agency period, so his days in New York could in fact be numbered. Additionally, he has a $3.75 million cap hit this year, however, if he is cut he will only cost a million in dead cap space for 2014.
