Philadelphia Eagles Brad Smith Improving Daily

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver/kick returner Brad Smith was signed late last season to the roster. At first it wasn’t clear exactly what his role would be. Speculation rose early he could play a pivotal role in the “Wildcat Formation.” He saw very little playing time last season though he did play in the one playoff game the Eagles appeared in against the New Orleans Saints. Outside of that we’ve heard very little about him. Until now.

Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur is getting all he can out of his offense. Brad Smith is becoming a valuable player in that scheme. He has multiple weapons this season. What was considered a potent, high-octane offense last season may be even more explosive this year.

This is a good sign that Shurmur is using Smith in this way. He is leaving no stone unturned and wants to have all his offense trained and ready to go come September 7th. In his last full season with the Buffalo Bills he had 14 receptions for 152 yards and scored 2 touchdowns.

In his hay-day Smith was a beast at kickoff returns. in 2012
