The Bills were happy to add Brad Smith to their roster via free agency last offseason, but didn’t have the time to properly incorporate him into their offense with the abbreviated amount of time prior to training camp. Looking ahead Bills GM Buddy Nix tried to outline where Smith will best be able to help Buffalo’s offense.
“I think it’s exactly what we thought when we brought him in here,” said Nix. “Brad can be a difference-maker if you use him in the right way. I think his versatility is the biggest thing about him and what makes him the most important. We were going along there and running the Wildcat with him and had that in and if you’d look, when our third-down efficiency dropped off was when we had to move him to wideout full-time. So it made it a lot harder. He’s good at that. He can do that, he can be your fifth or sixth wideout, he can be a good special teams player. I’m glad we’ve got him, great guy to have.”
With a full offseason to design more things within the offensive scheme for Smith his impact is likely to be more noticeable in 2012.
