Brad Smith is a lock for the Philadelphia Eagles final 53 man roster.
Why? Because Brad Smith is the Eagles’ Mr Versatile.
A wide receiver by trade, Brad Smith can also play on all four phases of special teams and act as a backup quarterback.
As the only player in NFL history to score touchdowns by rushing, receiving, passing, returning a kick off and returning a blocked punt, Brad Smith has shown he can be productive in a range of situations.
Brad Smith will add depth to the Eagles’ offense, experience to the special teams squad and another option as a kick off returner. He has also been thrown in as a quarterback on a handful of plays by the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles lack a little experience at the wide receiver position. Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper are the established veterans, while rookies Jordan Matthews and Joshua Huff look like promising rookies. The experience of a nine-year veteran at the position will be invaluable. Brad Smith is also a veteran who knows his role within the team. He is not going to be a number one or two receiver and seems happy with that. Brad Smith can be a contributor in many ways throughout this season and I am certain that Head Coach Chip Kelly will keep him on board this season.
