The Buffalo Bills have reshaped the tight end position during the offseason through free agency and the draft, and now bring back a familiar player to help out.
The 6-foot-6, 265-pound Smith returns for a second tour of duty in Buffalo. He originally entered the league in 2011 as a fifth-round pick with the New England Patriots before being waived, which led to the Bills claiming him. Smith played four seasons in Buffalo (2011-14) before spending the past four seasons with the Oakland Raiders (2015-18).
Smith, 31, won't turn head with his overall production -- 56 career catches for 392 yards and seven touchdowns in 107 games -- but he's known more for his blocking ability.
Meanwhile, Buffalo has focused on bolstering the offense throughout the offseason to provide more weapons and stability around second-year quarterback Josh Allen.
