Report: Eagles to sign Brad Smith today

Brad Smith didn’t have to wait long to find work.

According to Jason LaCanfora of CBSSports.com, the Eagles will sign the former Jets and Bills wideout today, pending a physical.

Smith was released with an injury settlement by the Bills last week, after a preseason rib injury initially landed him on IR.

He should be a good fit for an Eagles offense that has enjoyed some good performances of late from wide receiver Riley Cooper, but are still thin at the position. But Smith’s versatility will help them even if his role’s limited to special teams.
