Bills sign Lee Smith to 3-year deal -contract details released

Recommended Posts

Man, we are leaving no stone left unturned in our search for a better TE group.  I love that Beane refuses to just stand pat and is constantly seeking improvement.

I was never a big fan of his. 

Definitely don’t understand signing him now after we just drafted two and signed Kroft and fisher. I figured fisher would never make it regardless but now you’re pushing Sweeney to the practice squad and Croom is gone for sure.

Say what you want but Training Camp is going to be a lot of fun with all these battles (OL, TE, WR, CB)

A 1 year deal doesn’t surprise me.  A 3 year deal does.

In fairness, Lee Smith has always had a much bigger market than fans have appreciated.

3 years? Interesting...well hes a lock so 1 maybe 2 spots open. 

 

Kelly Pegula better say goodbye to her boyfriend.

1 yr maybe but 3 is foolish. He'll be 32 in November.  Averages 8 catches for 75 yards? Odd signing.

Ditto. 

This is a head scratcher for me. 4 new OL on one 1 year deals and ‘never was’ TE on a 3 year?

Not a fan of the signing i would rather see what Sweeney brings to the table 

I think they can do both. Smith is actually a great guy to have around for Sweeney.

He is one of the very best blocking tight ends in the game. The way I see the likely makeup of that room now is Kroft is your do all guy, Smith is your blocking TE, Knox is your receiving TE. Croom and Sweeney are battling for a spot on the roster with the 6th or 7th receiver, the 4th or 5th back and the 9th offensive lineman.

McBeane on the forefront of a game revolution.  Starting offense - 1 QB, 2 HBs, 8 TEs.  Who's gonna be prepared to stop that?

Wow.  A three year deal.  That seems like a lot.

all depends on the guarantee. a $500K signing bonus, with vet min guarantee, means a 1 year deal..and if he is good they have him locked up for the 2 more. If not, they cut him

Any time you can lock up a 31 year old blocking TE you just have to do it. Welcome home my sweet prince.

The most questionable move Beane has pulled, imo. Dont like this at all. But I'll trust the process... for now.
