Steve Smith left the Giants for the Eagles in free agency this year, and he’s expecting a rude reception from Giants fans tonight. But there’s already talk that Smith could be back with the Giants again next season.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that people who know Smith think he’d love to return to the Giants after the season, and that he believes the Giants are the best fit for him.
The Eagles haven’t been a particularly good fit for Smith: He has just 10 catches for 110 yards this season. So it’s easy to envision Smith being one-and-done in Philadelphia.
And if he is, it’s easy to envision him returning to the Giants. He was a perfect fit in their offense during his one full, healthy season as a starter, catching 107 passes for 1,220 yards and seven touchdowns. The Giants might be the best team for him.
