I'll never forget Lee Smith when he was mic'd up with the Falcons when they played the Bills a couple years ago. Hilarious!

I always loved how color commentators would refer to him as "blocking tight end Lee Smith," and then he'd go ahead and catch a TD pass. As slow as he was, he actually ran routes a few times per game, and if the defense didn't notice him, he'd make a play. He was a better athlete than people gave him credit for. I saw him in an interview once where he bragged that he could play anywhere on the O-line, in a pinch. But, his real use was in the jumbo packages. That was where the much-maligned Bobby Hart was actually useful. I think it's a wrinkle that this current roster lacks.

My guess is he signs to the PS to start.  Learn the playbook and get up to speed.  After that, we shall see.


Yea he would be a PS addition. Even Wilson the young kid on the PS at TE is not really a blocker. Having someone who can fulfil that role somewhere makes sense.

I said earlier the Bills could use at least one TE who’s a blocking specialist versus just using an extra lineman.




Yes I remember thinking that after Paul Seymour retired in 1977.


Those were the days.


What time is it? It's really dark outside.

My guess would be this guy starts on practice squad and occasionally gets elevated to be a blocking TE based on gameplan.  Or if he gets signed to active roster I guess Quinton might go to PS?

Von is going to be pissed ... he wants to be the first player to win a SB with 3 different teams!

If 2 guys. do it together that could be fun trivia down the road :)
