Today’s only reserve/futures deal:
The next NFL stop for Smith will be Detroit after an uneventful season in Denver. Smith had initially followed Sean Payton and company to the Broncos after five seasons with the Saints, but injuries and an inability to make his way off the practice squad led to only one game appearance in 2023, in which he played only ten snaps for Denver. When healthy, Smith has proven to be a productive supporting receiver, demonstrated by 17 touchdowns over the course of his four-year rookie contract in New Orleans. If he can shake the injury bug and get to looking like his old self, the veteran could be a nice addition to a talented, young wide receiving corps.
