TE Smith to have bigger role

Posted by Chris Brown on September 27, 2011 – 2:54 pm

With veteran TE David Martin released to make room for CB Terrence Wheatley on the active roster, rookie TE Lee Smith will step into a bigger role on game days.

Martin had been serving as the team’s primary blocking tight end, but now that he’s no longer on the roster that duty will fall to Smith. Smith (6’5″ 270) was picked up off waivers from New England at the start of the regular season.

Now that he’s been around a month, he’s likely comfortable enough to execute a game plan on a Sunday. With Scott Chandler the only other tight end on the roster, it’s likely that Smith will be active on Sunday. Smith has been inactive each of the first three games.
